Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI)
535 West 22nd Street 5th Floor
February 27th, 7:00 PM

EAI is pleased to welcome Charles Atlas, for an evening dedicated to the life and legend of Leigh Bowery. Atlas will present his documentary The Legend of Leigh Bowery, a complex, candid portrait of his friend and collaborator. An artist, performer, fashion designer, model, and club promoter and icon, Bowery made an indelible mark on nightlife, fashion, and artmaking in London, New York, and beyond, in the brief period before his early death from AIDS-related illness in 1994. Through a wealth of archival footage and frank and uncensored interviews with friends, family, and fellow artists, Atlas traces the extraordinary impact Bowery had on culture, recalling his infamous nightclub Taboo, his collaborations with dancer and choreographer Michael Clark, his time as a muse to Lucien Freud, and his notorious, innovative, and influential fashions and performances.
