Last night at the Film-Makers Co-op benefit concert, accompanying a film by Bill Morrison. She also provided a perfect soundtrack for a dude trance-dancing in the corner. Creative people!
Below is Jonas Mekas presenting an award to Charles S. Cohen of Cohen Brothers Realty. Charles’s bio contains off-putting phrases like “entrepreneurial real estate executive” and “elite financial firms” but also pleasing ones like “repositions and maximizes the potential of underutilized buildings” and “executive producer for the film Frozen River, which was awarded the 2008 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize.” So homeboy may look out of place but he’s all good. Especially since he was being honored for giving the Co-op a new awesome space on Park Avenue South after they were evicted from the Clocktower Building for, well, let’s just say greed. And also that MoMA may or may not have something to do with it.
You can’t really see it, but the award was adorable. It was designed by Tom Otterness, of art world and 14th St./8th Ave. subway station fame.
And that’s all I have because I am old and I was tired. But the rest of the evening had rare films and performances by Text of Light (Alan Licht, Lee Ranaldo, & Ryan Sawyer), Erik Freidlander, and Tony Conrad, as well as an art auction with works by Mekas, Guy Maddin… etc., etc.,
Also, it was at Santos Party House, so this was in the corner:
Because Andrew W.K. loves film and Andrew W.K. loves YOU.
