Event Description

Dirty Looks at MoMA: Andy Warhol, Taylor Mead’s Ass, 16mm, B&W, 1965.

Museum of Modern Art (Sculpture Garden, exterior).

RSVP at dirtylooksnyc@gmail.com

Taylor Mead’s Ass was made as a playful response to a letter to the editor complaint in The Village Voice, which reduced Warhol's prior collaborations with the actor to "Taylor Mead's ass for two hours." The film features various everyday tools, such as books and carrots, vacuums and publicity glossies, coming into humorously close and awkward contact with Mead's bare buttocks for the film's entire running time. The screening also serves as a posthumous homage to Mead, who passed away in May.

The screening will be the first in a series of collaborations between the Museum of Modern Art and Dirty Looks NYC, Dirty Looks at MoMA: Mining the Collection, which places queer film, video and performance from the MoMA Film permanent collection in unlikely spaces throughout the museum’s two venues. Positioned within the museum's modernist sculpture garden setting, Warhol's witty retort will take on new, and humorously formal, properties.'
