We packed the house at New Fest!

We packed the house in New York at HBO’s NewFest for the Steven Arnold: Heavenly Bodies Screening. Thank you to those who attended! The film is now headed to France and will accompany a solo show of Steven Arnold’s photography hosted by Fahey/Klein Gallery at Paris Photo. The exhibit will be on-going from November 7-10 at the Grand Palais, Booth A33. Screenings take place at the MK2 Grand Palais on November 8 at 3pm and November 10th at 5pm.

In a new article from Another Man, Miss Rosen pens a fitting tribute to Steven’s life and career.

“Artist, photographer, filmmaker, and ‘queer mystic’ Steven F. Arnold (1943–1994) is a quintessential icon of our times, a revolutionary figure whose ideas about gender fluidity, radical acceptance, and non-binary consciousness, first realised in the late 1960s, are just now becoming part of the cultural conversation.”

Here is the full article.
