Deitch Projects, Downtown ’81, Basquiat, Card, 2001.

Size: 8.5 x 5.5 inches.

Today the film Downtown 81 (produced by Maripol, directed by Edo Bartoglio with a screenplay by Glenn O’Brien, and starring Jean-Michel Basquiat) is celebrated as a definitive record of the post-punk art and music scene that flourished in New York in the 1980s.  Although the movie was filmed in the 1980s, it was only completed in 2000, and is rarely shown. This striking card announces an exhibition about the film at the Jeffrey Deitch Gallery in 2001.
