iPOP On the Scene at the party for Matthew Barney's "Cremaster Cycle"

by Brian Brooks

Art and film mixed together over cocktails at Pianos in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, with one member of the "art crowd" sighing, "there are definitely film people here!" Among the film people were Anthology Film Archives' Jonas Mekas, the Palm Pictures clan including Palm head Chris Blackwell as well as the folks from Wellspring, ThinkFilm and Arnie Sawyer and Assoc. Also hanging out was "Cremaster" director, Matthew Barney.
