Viewing Room: A Tribute to Jonas Mekas

March 14, 2020 - May 9, 2020

Jonas Mekas: the Founder of Anthology Films in New York, the filmmaker, poet, writer, curator and artist. Jonas Mekas captured moments that we all cherish in art history, in American history, in life… from film producers, Salvador Dali, the Kennedy’s, Warhol, Yoko Ono and John Lennon, Elvis Presley, the World Trade Center… to more personal, special moments of nature, his family, being human, celebrating life and cherishing each experience to the fullest. Jonas made a major contribution to the art world and is greatly missed. He passed away on January 23, 2019 at 96 years old. Since then, there have been many events celebrating his life last year, including Homage to a Happy Man: Celebrating Jonas Mekas (1922 – 2019) at St Mark’s Church last May. This is the first solo art exhibition paying Tribute to his artistic career since his passing.
