The No Wave films produced in downtown New York in the 1970s and 1980s remain an intriguing hybrid of art, fashion, music, and performance. No film was more evocative of the No Wave genre than Amos Poe’s The Foreigner, with its noir narrative and glamorous cast of musicians, artists and nightlife celebrities.
Rarely screened today, The Foreigner lives on primarily through the excellent photographs taken by Fernando Natalici on set to publicize the film. Gallery 98 has a number of vintage RC prints made from the original negatives by Natalici in the early 1990s when The Foreigner was first released as a VHS video. All prints are signed and annotated by Natalici.
Gallery 98 also has vintage press photos and publicity posters by Beth B and Scott B, Charlie Ahearn, Gordon Stevenson and other No Wave filmmakers. Check out our now closed online exhibition of No Wave and Independent Films and see our current inventory at our inventory focus page.
