Arts Bombast: No Wave Film
Gallery 98 just opened an online exhibition of photographs, posters, and other ephemera from No Wave film. The exhibition features rare materials from the films of Amos Poe, Beth B and Scott B, and Charlie Ahearn. Everything is as gritty, sexy, and violent as you’d hope.
What more can I say? Check out the images below, and if you have an extra $110 lying around, please please buy me the photo of Anya Phillips, k?
