A double-sided card/announcement for a memorial gathering on October 16, 1989 at P.S. 122 for "legendary filmmaker, theatrical genius" Jack Smith. Smith was an icon of experimental film and an early performance artist. His notorious art film "Flaming Creatures" was banned from some venues due to its graphic nature, and confiscated by police at one screening. Smith was also an actor and appeared in films by Andy Warhol and Robert Wilson's plays. Smith died from AIDS-related pneumonia in 1989.
Condition: Near Fine, light toning to card.
