JACK SMITH (1932-1989)

How Can Uncle Fishhook Have a Free Bicentennial Zombie Underground? / Boiled Lobster Color Slideshow by Jack Smith.
Offset lithographed poster, 435x570 mm, 17 1/4x22 1/2 inches. 1976.

This performance was a metaphor of how Smith felt he had been treated by Joans Mekas (who he nicknamed "Uncle Fishhook"), who he faulted for taking advantage of the accalim Smith achieved with his most famous film Flaming Creatures, in 1963.
