Amos Poe film retrospective

New Museum (Venue Partner)

235 Bowery




Amos Poe isn't only No Wave Cinema royalty, he's also an indie film icon whose mid-1970s work perfectly captured the gritty mean streets of New York. His work as director for Glenn O'Brien public-access television show "TV Party" and his 1976 film "Blank Generation," are some of the best documents of the Lower East scene that gave us the art of Basquiat and the music of the Ramones, Blondie, and Television. The New Museum will be showing four of those films, The Foreigner (1978), Alphabet City (1984), Frogs For Snakes (1998), and Empire II (2007), as a tribute to the iconic New York City filmmaker.
