CANDY DARLING (1944 – 1974) CANDY DARLING was – and remains – best known for her roles in two films produced by Andy Warhol and directed by Paul Morrissey, “Flesh” (1968), and “Women in Revolt” (1972). She was, however, in a number of other noteworthy independent films, including “Brand X” (Win Chamberlain, 1970), “Some of My Best Friends Are” (Mervyn Nelson, 1971) and “The Death of Maria Malibran” (Werner Schroeter, 1972). Known for her beauty, wit, and talent, Darling was also a sought-after actress in off and off-off Broadway productions of the sixties and seventies, best known for her work in plays by Jackie Curtis and Tom Eyen, and for appearing in the role of Violet in Tennessee Williams’ “Small Craft Warnings.” Born a male, and having lived the latter part of her life as a woman, Darling is now celebrated as a pioneer among transgendered communities worldwide. She is the subject of the documentary “Beautiful Darling” (2010), produced by Jeremiah Newton and directed by James Rasin.

Jessie blew me away with what she pulled off.   The opening was intimate and there was not even a dash of the uber-cool art types, & no Paris Hilton’s,  or Lady Gaga’s, but if one has any knowledge of underground legends this night was to get an introduction.  As Jessie says: “some are still on the run.”  Still keeping it real.   A slice of the names I can mention are: COST (yes COST!)- REMO- (ttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYqnPCmB-Q4), CH (Charlie Hustle)- the Peter Pan Posse- Mint and Serf- and others who I will not name.  Of course OG Steve Cannon is the man- no question about that.

 

I have seen a number of shows which has used graffiti covered walls as a backdrop to an exhibition– but what Mint & Serf pulled off is one of the most authentic jobs I have witnessed- I guess the fact that it was all legends who marked the walls is the reason why.

 

No question Jessie made my day-  for this I say thanks Jessie- 2 thumbs up.  clayton patterson
