KENNY SCHARF: WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE
Along with friends Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kenny Scharf grew from a graffiti artist into a major force in the 1980s NYC art scene. Obsessed with garbage, cartoons, and plastic, this playful Peter Pan’s roller coaster career flourished despite the decimation of the AIDS crisis and the fickle tastes of the art world. From street art to museums, Scharf continues to create colorful, complex work that puts him at the forefront of where popular culture meets fine art.
Included with the screening ticket is an exclusive pre-recorded Q&A with Director/Producer Malia Scharf, Director/Editor Maxwell Basch, immediately following the film.
