June 25th at Kunsthalle Galapagos
As part of the exhibition On-Looking at Kunsthalle Galapagos, we are pleased to present a special 16mm screening of Andy Warhol's Beauty #2 from 1965 on loan from MoMA.
The film stars Edie Sedgewick, Gino Piserchio and Chuck Wein. In it, half-naked Edie Sedgewick and Gino Piserchio engage in intimate foreplay on a bed as Sedgewick is antagonized off-camera by Chuck Wein. The viewer is involved in a complicit relationship of voyeurism and abuse as Sedgewick counters Wein and is simultaneously an object of desire.
The screening lasts 65 minutes and will begin at 8 p.m. on June 25th at Kunsthalle Galapagos, 16 Main St. in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Doors open at 7 p.m. The screening is free to the public.
Additional screenings will be held daily from 5 - 6 p.m. on June 27th, 28th and 30th.
