Renasissance Man Malcolm Mclaren in Philadelphia…

When Helen Bach read the notice below her response was “I can only hope it tours! otherwise I have til 1/3 to get to Philly! Nifty!”

PHILADELPHIA – In his nearly four decades as a vanguard of pop culture, Malcolm McLaren has worn many hats: musician, producer, filmmaker, impresario, fashion designer, reality TV star.

At age 63, the one-time manager of The Sex Pistols is adding another discipline to his resume: visual artist.

“Shallow 1-21,” a series of 21 short video works that combine snips of obscure 1960s sex films with musical “cut-ups” by McLaren, is on view at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts through Jan. 3.

It’s the first time the 86-minute piece is being shown in its entirety in the U.S.

The 21 segments — only four of which include nudity — consist of just a few frames of film, slowed down and repeated to match the length of each piece of music.
