DESCRIPTION OF DOCUMENTARY
WEDNESDAYS AT A’S is a feature-length documentary about Arleen Schloss, a noted underground artist, director and curator who was an influential figure in the New York art, video, performance art and music scenes.
Arleen began her influence through A’s – an interdisciplinary loft space that became a hub for music, exhibitions, performance art and films. A hotbed of experimentation, A’s featured works from then unknowns Sonic Youth, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Eric Bogosian, Glenn Branca, Shirin Neshat, Phoebe Legere, Sur Rodney Sur, Ai WeiWei and Alan Suiclde.
Arleen gained attention as a critically acclaimed performance artist in the 1970s. The New York Times noted that her "performance art was superior to most performance art," and the SoHo News compared her voice to Yoko Ono's and Patti Smith's.
WEDNESDAYS AT A’S explores how Arleen's art work evolved and changed with the times. Through exclusive never before seen archival footage shot by Arleen herself, mixed with interviews with people from the scene, we trace her life story and see – from her point of view- how New York City has changed from the 1970’s to present day.
