Photos from Robert Williams Screening of MR BITCHIN at MOCAStreet Art // Thursday, 20 Jan 2011
I don¹t remember driving through police barricades when Stecyk and I pulled up to the Museum of Contemporary Art but somehow we were the only car in the underground lot. Back on street level, catering truck intelligensia informed it was the filming of Spider Man, so we headed inside, confident that Robert Williams¹ disciples would find their super Spidy senses to find parking and ferret out the theater. We did, they did, and the experience was even better my second time around, especially with observations by Jeffrey Deitch, Meg Linton and Doug Shaw during a post-viewing panel discussion.
Next stop is NYC where philospher-provacateur painter Robert Williams' Mr Bitchin will open the documentary series on February 7th at the MoMA, followed by a question and answer policed by the peerless Carlo McCormick. —Gwynned Vitello
