AM just found out that Patti Astor (the legendary founder of NYC’s FUN GALLERY) is hard at work on a feature documentary about the early days of the NYC scene. Best known to you as the blond reporter in “Wild Style,” the doc tells the story of the first art gallery in NY’s East Village and the convergence of rappers, breakdancers, graffiti artists and indie filmmakers who contributed to the birth of the hip hop aesthetic. Patti was one of the first curators to show the legends of graffiti in a gallery setting including Fab 5 Freddy, LEE (Quinones), Zephyr, Dondi, Lady Pink, and Futura 2000. She also gave important shows to Kenny Scharf (in 1981), Jean Michel Basquiat (November 1982), and Keith Haring (February, 1983).
