Please join us to hear a selection of OBSCURA Artists speaking about their new works...

OBSCURA is an exhibition of new works that are created to be self-illuminated and thereby only fully revealed and understood in an environment of total darkness. Each piece will require intimacy, time and thoughtfulness on the part of the viewer - the exhibition as a whole is meant to fully engage the eyes and mind.

Andy Warhol #7:
Lonesome Cowboys in Atlanta

a four-part series

PART 1: Horse (1965, 100 minutes)
March 25, 2010

A Film Love event
curated by Andy Ditzler

HORSE (1965)
script by Ronald Tavel
Warhol’s first Western – made inside the New York Factory studio on East 47th Street with a rented horse delivered on a freight elevator – is one of his most extreme films. On the surface, Ronald Tavel’s script functions as a wicked send-up of the latent homoeroticism, camp, and horse love in Westerns. But during filming, the script’s undercurrents and Warhol’s talent for on-set chaos transform Horse into a study in violence, group dynamics, strip poker, and...horse love.
16mm, b&w, sound, 100 minutes

ABOUT THE "LONESOME COWBOYS" SERIES

On Tuesday, August 5, 1969, Andy Warhol’s latest film – Lonesome Cowboys, a homoerotic satire on the Hollywood Western – was playing at the Ansley Mall Mini Cinema in Atlanta. Just before the film’s ending, Atlanta police stopped the screening, confiscated the print, and arrested the theater manager. In addition, they photographed most if not all of the seventy moviegoers as they exited the cinema, looking for "known homosexuals."

Occurring just weeks after the New York City Stonewall riots launched the modern gay rights movement, the Lonesome Cowboys bust became a tipping point for local activism and led directly to the formation of the Georgia chapter of the Gay Liberation Front.

As a memorial to these events – and in our ongoing series on Warhol’s important but rarely seen 1960s films – Film Love presents a multi-part series on Lonesome Cowboys and its Atlanta connection. Included are a screening of Lonesome Cowboys in its entirety; a site-specific installation incorporating the film near the location of the old Ansley Mall Cinema; and accompanying screenings of two related Warhol films.

As with all early Warhol films, none of the films selected for this series exist on video in the United States.
