Retro @ SXSW Film Fest
Katerina Jones, was an African-American Burlesque pioneer, set against Cleveland between the depression and World War II. Cleveland was the nations fifth largest city; and her second foremost Theatre District.
When race was very much an issue. Despised, from the moment she auditioned; she rapidly became the clubs headline attraction, in all but name. She began the change in America's perception of the feminine ideal.
Captured in an aesthetic, which could only be captured by America's foremost fetish photographer, Marc Breed.
This is a one-evening showing, with individual advance ticket available exclusively through Brown Paper Tickets.
18 years and older.
Marc Breed has been the dark daVinci of this generation. Both artists, aimed their work squarely, at what today would be considered Mensans.
As a college senior, he became lead camera on the first, female-directed (Gail Palmer, MSU art grad student); exclusively art student-created (Big Ten schools), highest grossing adult film (until The Devil in Ms. Jones) of all-time; in The Erotic Adventures of Candy (starring Carole Connors, of T.V.'s the Gong Show). In an era which saw organized crime controlled industry.
Scarcely five years later, Marc was featured on The Mike Douglas Show, as a member of the first male exotic dance review, anywhere. He also took out the first touring company of dancers; the U.S. Male. Known then by psuedonym Dave 'the knave'.
He was also indicted for security frauds. Having crafted financial instruments, which fooled banks. And escaped shortly thereafter.
Who is he in this guise as an fine artist? Ask Christies, who he has fooled yet again, with his counterfiet paintings. Google him. Or, better still, ask a Clevelander. Where his wickedly satiracal handbills & postcards, fool everyone.
Until now, very few folks have purchased tickets. Those that have, understand that this mans work, is a fine art investment.
Is this real or not? Frankly, I haven't a clue. He simply is unlike any artist before him.
