Synopsis
A ride through the world of the 1960's New York art scene, one of the most creatively fertile periods of American art as seen through the eyes of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's modern art curator Henry Geldzahler. Henry reveled in the hip and debaucherous parties that marked the downtown artists' community, never missing an event that promised to draw only the biggest and brightest stars of art and music. Not only was Henry a curator to the artists whose work he championed, he was also accepted as one of their own. He had an unsurpassed eye for spotting talent and was single-handedly responsible for curating the largest exhibit of modern art ever shown at the MET: New York Painting and Sculpture 1940-1970.
