Who Gets to Call it Art?
Directed by Peter Rosen (2006 | 78 min.)
This documentary explores the iconoclastic life of museum curator Henry Geldzahler. A voice in the wilderness during the 1960s, Geldzahler championed the work of pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, who were not highly accepted in the art scene. Through footage from the era and interviews with artists, the film reveals Geldzahler’s contributions to the art world — including his landmark exhibition “New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Public Funding for film provided by Suffolk County.
