“Shot over 11 years by renowned fashion photographer Steven Sebring, Patti Smith: Dream of Life is an intimate portrait of the legendary rocker, poet and artist. Following Smith’s personal reflections over a decade, the film explores her many art forms and the friends and poets who inspired her — William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Bob Dylan, Robert Mapplethorpe and Michael Stipe. She emerges as a crucial, contemporary link between the Beats, punks and today’s music.”
It’s the Patti Smith season.
On January 15th, we’re screening Dan Graham’s Rock My Religion here at the Henry. It features some brain-melting Patti Smith footage – and its title comes directly from Smith’s music. Seattle Arts and Lectures is bringing the “Godmother of Punk” to Seattle on January 25. She’ll read from her new book, Just Kids. In this, her first book of prose, she offers a never-before-seen glimpse of her remarkable relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe in the late sixties and seventies.
