Bob Schulenberg: The Secret Cinema Drawings

Patrick Parrish Gallery is pleased to present Bob Schulenberg: The Secret Cinema Drawings, an exhibition of drawings and photographs by celebrated 1960s illustrator, Bob Schulenberg. Schulenberg's work acts as a visual diary chronicling the trials, struggles, and minor triumphs he (as co-producer) and director Paul Bartel experienced in making the landmark short film, The Secret Cinema (1968), that has become a staple of American film school education since its release in the late '60s.

Drawings of cast and crew are interspersed with photos of their trip to London in 1966 to screen a rough cut of the film, where they fell in with a receptive crowd including a young Roman Polanski and his wife Sharon Tate. Other familiar faces in the show include an ingenue Barbra Streisand, sketched and photographed in the early 1960s when Bob was new to New York and she was just starting her career as a nightclub singer in the West Village.

The exhibition will run in conjunction with the film series Paul Bartel: A New York Tribute, hosted by Anthology Film Archives. Exhibition curated and designed by Andrea Salvini. Film event programmed and hosted by David Savage.
