Mary Woronov @ Workspace
Mary Woronov is the raddest B-movie actress of all time. This is true not only because she is self-aware, saucy and sincerely good at what she does– but also because she’s an artist, a Factory Girl, and a prolific writer. She’s written novels, memoirs, and essays for Artillery on legendary artists from Edward Hopper to Takashi Murakami. She’s a trailblazer and I admire the winding and unconventional path she’s taken through life. When I look at the insane number of marvelous trashy movies on her IMDb profile, all I can think of is what a shame it is that she’s not in ALL the B-movies. Side note: I’m pretty sure there exists a clause in her contract stating that all Mary Woronov movies must have AMAZING posters (see below).
Woronov will be gracing one of my favorite L.A. galleries, Workspace, with her presence on Sunday, October 17th, for a reading called Notes on Film. It’s the latest installment in Nikki Darling and Kate Wolf’s excellent Five Point Readings series, and she’ll be flanked by CalArts faculty member/curator Michael Ned Holte and Peruvian photographer George Porcari. Go see a living legend in the flesh!
