Aug. 20 - Dec. 23, 2014

Alfred Leslie and Frank O'Hara

Frank O’Hara is considered one of the most important and influential postwar American poets. Two years prior to his untimely death, he collaborated with Leslie to produce the experimental film The Last Clean Shirt (1964).

The film is being screened in conjunction with the exhibition Alfred Leslie: The Killing Cycle….
