Charlie Nash—intransigent anarchist, respected artist, and prolific maker of noise forced a circus of creativity on Lansing, MI. Among his many disruptive contributions to culture, he was influential in the No Wave scene (Arsenal), he was the publisher of Queer Magnolia (zine); he was a motor force of the noise scene; and he was central to the Snake Rodeo, Hum House, and basement414. Join us for a look at “Queer Magnolia” with zine librarian Joshua Barton (at the Murray & Hong Special Collections at MSU), and A.J. Glaub (artistic collaborator with Nash), as well as other works Nash submitted to the MSU Special Collections. This will be followed by the first digital showing of Nash’s 1978 film, “Against Nature”, filmed in and around NYC, including footage inside long-gone book and print store Orientalia, candid footage of Charlie’s home life, and Charlie himself. 38 mins.
This film may not be appropriate for all ages, and includes some nudity and images of sex acts.
