$10,000 toward the photography component of Flaming Creature: The Art and Life of Jack Smith, a retrospective exhibition organized by guest curator Edward Leffingwell. An influential force in the history of film, contemporary art, and performance in New York, Smith’s photographs from the late 1950s and early 1960s often depict narrative tableaux populated by the eccentric figures of underground bohemia.
