Kenneth Anger at Spruth Magers
Renowned 60s avant garde film maker and, weirdly, Hollywood gossip hound Kenneth Anger has just opened a show at Spruth Magers gallery at the end of Dover St. Expect beautiful and disturbing montages of tough bikers and glamorous oblivious women superimposed with occult and Satanist imagery, set to a seemingly unrelated rock and roll soundtrack. Ah the late 1960s, when rock was still regarded by the establishment as a dangerous and revolutionary influence. A particularly satanic Mick Jagger provides the soundtrack to Invocation of My Demon Brother, one fo the films featured here.
