John Waters: Change of Life, February 7 – April 15, 2004

at the New Museum, New York City

The New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York City is mounting a retrospective of John Waters’ photographic and sculptural works that will open February 7 and run through April 15. But the big news for fans is that in addition to approximately 80 photographic and sculptural works, they will also be showing three of John’s VERY early films that have only been shown once in Baltimore.

Hag in a Black Leather Jacket (1964) (17 mins)

Roman Candles (1966) (40 mins) and

Eat Your Make-Up (1967) (45 mins)

will be continuously screened in the gallery space during the exhibition. For more on these films, visit the Dreamland Filmography. In addition to Waters’ artworks and early films, the exhibition features an installation by his longtime production designer, Vince Peranio. John will be in attendance at some special events planned for later in the Spring.

For directions to the museum, hours of exhibition and more information, please visit the New Museum‘s site. Harry N. Abrams is publishing the accompanying catalogue.
