SF | The Bob Mizer Foundation Art Walk Movie Night | May 4, 2017

The Bob Mizer Foundation is pleased to announce its movie night occurring on Thursday, May 4 at the Magazine from 7-9PM during the Upper Tenderloin Art Walk night.

In keeping with Mizer’s tradition of screening films to models, patrons and friends, the Foundation will screen several short films during the course of the evening. Titles of films to be shown include Kissing Rocks, Reticent Roommate, The Naughty Fauns, Boy From Planet Q and many others. These rarely seen movies will be projected and looped onto a screen in the Magazine during the Tenderloin Art Walk.  Viewer discretion is advised as there will be nudity and adult situation.

The film and video collection is crucial to understanding the artist Bob Mizer. From the time he obtained his first film camera in 1953 until his death in 1992, Mizer actively explored the moving image, creating epic films, quick posing shorts, and early erotic films which played in city movie houses. His films and video capture the rich and raw texture of the fertile cultural milieu, in which he lived and worked.

In 2010, upon receiving ownership of the rights to Bob Mizer’s entire film and video work, the The Bob Mizer Foundation was granted the opportunity and responsibility of presenting this permanent collection of Bob Mizer’s work in the most authoritative and accessible manner possible, for both general and scholarly audiences.

We invite the public to swing by and take part in viewing some rarely seen films by Mizer. This is the beginning of a monthly film series that we will host every First Thursday Artwalk. For more info, please contact de@bobmizer.org
