An Evening Film Viewing
ART BASTARD is the rousing tale of a rebel who never fit into today’s art world, yet has become one of it’s most provocative, rabble-rousing characters. An energetic, humorous and unapologetically honest look at the uncompromising artist Robert Cenendella – a contemporary of Warhol who set himself up in the ‘60s as the anti-Warhol. Cenendella has always been in search of authenticity, and from his story of battling family secrets and his own personal demons, coupled with a look at the money-fueled art establishment, emerges a picture of creating a life on one’s own terms. Featuring Jim MacDonald, Editor; Mario Sprouse, Music Supervisor.
