On June 16 @ 8pm Eastern, Director Stephen Wilkes will join us for a live Q&A after streaming “Jay Myself,” a fascinating film about Jay Maisel and The Bank – a six-floor, 36,000 square foot, 100-year-old landmark building that sits on the corner of the Bowery and Spring Street.For decades The Bank was draped in mystery, graffiti-covered, with boarded-up windows. Inside, renowned photographer/artist Jay Maisel inhabited a thriving creative paradise since 1966.
A successful commercial photographer (covers for New York Magazine, Sports Illustrated swimsuit editions, and the iconic Miles Davis Kind of Blue album), Jay is also a prolific art photographer and obsessive collector of extraordinary (and ordinary) objects that inspired him.JAY MYSELF chronicles Maisel’s monumental move out of his 72-room home following its sale, the largest private real estate deal in NYC history.
With humor and awe, Stephen Wilkes captures Maisel’s half-century of collecting – having had the room to save and exhibit every last thing he found beautiful, strange, or (potentially) useful.
