SCOOTER LAFORGE: A LIFE OF ART
WORLD PREMIERE Scooter LaForge, heir to the artistic legacies of Basquiat and Haring, believes an artist’s duty is to have fun. Influenced by Pollack, surrealism, and Saturday morning cartoons, Scooter’s queer, punk-rock aesthetic was embraced by downtown fashion designer Patricia Field, and his bespoke painted clothing has been worn by icons like Debbie Harry, Beyoncé, and Nicki Minaj. Laced with animations and NYC art mavens, this film, as vibrant as its puckish subject, charts the creative journey of a unique cross-medium artist. – Karen McMullen
