Co-presented by O Cinema and Oolite Arts,
Art Films presents the best of films by and about artists, followed by a post-film discussion. This edition will feature a FREE online screening of KENNY SCHARF: WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE on Wednesday, July 21st @ 7:00pm, followed by a post-film discussion with directors Malia Scharf and Max Basch & Oolite Arts Cinematic Arts Manager Danielle Bender.

KENNY SCHARF: WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE was made over 11 years and features interviews and rare archival footage with Kenny Scharf, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Ed Ruscha, Dennis Hopper, Yoko Ono, Kaws, Marilyn Minter, and Jeffrey Deitch. The documentary shows Scharf’s New York City arrival in the early 1980s where he quickly befriended Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. This trio, amongst the fervent creative bustle of a depressed downtown scene, would soon take the art world by storm. While Basquiat and Haring both died tragically young, Scharf lived through cataclysmic shifts in New York City and the art world. Despite setbacks along the way, Scharf continues to follow his particular high-tone, technicolor artistic vision while growing public and critical appreciation for his earlier work has cemented his place as a pop art icon.
