“Art school? Art school? I didn’t have the luxury of going to art school..." is the revolutionary filmmaker Jack Smith (1932–1989) cited by Clayton Patterson in his book 'Captured - A Lower East Side Film & Video History' (2005, www.sevenstories.com/book/?GCOI=58322100847630) where film pioneers like Allen Ginsburg, Andy Warhol... are discussed.
Now, 'Jack Smith - A Feast for Open Eyes' is on show with accompanying debates from 7 – 18 September 2011 at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London.

New York based artist Jack Smith influenced esthetics in performance art, photography and theatre. Musician John Zorn collaborated with Smith in the 70/80s. In the exhibition in London, Zorn contributes the music to a slide show documentation about the 70/80s. http://www.ica.org.uk/29987/Seasons/Jack-Smith-A-Feast-for-Open-Eyes.html
