Take a wild ride with some legendary artists and curators through the art scene of the 1960s. Time Out New York calls this film "wonderful…an exuberant fix for art junkies." Who Gets to Call It Art? focuses on Henry Geldzahler, the legendary modern art curator at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. Featuring never-before-seen footage of Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, and others, the film explores one of the most creatively fertile periods of the last century. With a soundtrack that includes the Velvet Underground, Can, Eric Dolphy, and the Monks, it's a thrilling, vibrant look at an amazing 10 years when American artists were challenging just about everything. With David Hockney, Frank Stella, Jonas Mekas, and others. (80 mins., 35mm)
