A Dance with Fred Astaire: On Sale Now!


Jonas Mekas’ visual autobiography, A Dance with Fred Astaire, is now available! Born in 1922, Jonas Mekas has lived a uniquely influential life as an artist, filmmaker and bon vivant that spans the 20th century into the 21st: he played an instrumental role in the careers of Jack Smith, Andy Warhol and numerous other iconic artists, and hung out with everyone from Salvador Dalí to the Kennedys. A Dance with Fred Astaire covers the 94 years Mekas has spent weaving himself inextricably into the fabric of postwar culture, featuring a dizzying cast of cultural icons both underground and mainstream.
