About this event

Hugh Lane Gallery presents four programmes of films, of which this is the final one, to be screened in Gallery 18 to accompany the exhibition Andy Warhol Three Times Out.

Summoning the spirit of Andy Warhol, each programme features artist-made films from the sixties till the present selected and introduced by filmmaker Vivienne Dick with a Q & A session to follow.

Portrait of Jason (1967), (90 mins) directed by Shirley Clarke, is a cinema-verite style documentary about Jason Holliday (Aka Aaron Payne), a Black houseboy, raconteur and self-declared hustler. No other film at that time spoke so frankly about gay life, racism and drug use.

Readers are advised to check with the venue before relying on the details published here.
