RADIO // New York Public LibraryMalcolm McLaren and Cay Sophie Rabinowitz
Originally aired 2/12/10
Artist and pop culture visionary Malcolm McLaren and writer, curator and editor Cay Sophie Rabinowitz held a conversation at the New York Public Library on February 2, 2010, beneath projected images of their respective projects. A good portion of the evening centered on Shallow, McLaren’s filmic mashup of pre-home video sex movies and popular music fragments. Between the master raconteur's numerous anecdotes illuminating his adventures surrounding his various projects, he also discusses his as-of-the-moment-unreleased film Paris, also culled largely from archival footage. The event was co-presented by the NYPL’s An Art Book Series and D.A.P. (Distributed Art Publishers) in celebration of McLaren’s 2010 book Malcolm McLaren: Musical Paintings and the US release of FANTOM, a photographic quarterly co-edited by Rabinowitz. The program is introduced by Arezoo Moseni, Senior Art Librarian at the New York Public Library (1 hour 14 minutes).
