Tribute to Jonas Mekas (1922 – 2019)

Share the post

A figure of the counter-culture and co-founder Anthology Film Archives, NYC

We are sad to hear about the passing of Jonas Mekas, filmmaker, poet, artist, and friend of agnès b. Jonas’s work has influenced and intertwined with the agnès b. universe for many years.

He exhibited his “frozen-film” prints to the public for the first time at the Galerie du Jour agnès b. in 1996. He was the very first artist to design the Point d’Ironie, a carte blanche offered to an artist, 8 pages of atypical periodical, published by agnès b.

His autobiography, A Dance with Fred Astaire, debuted in Paris at the Galerie du Jour in 2018. Solo exhibitions presented at the Galerie du Jour in Paris include A few things I want to share with you, my Paris friends in 2009 and This Side of Paradise in 1999.

“I chose to exhibit at agnès b.’s Galerie du Jour because of its lack of pretension. But I will always do everything for my friends. agnès is a very good friend … I only work for friendship, not for the consideration of my career as an artist. I have an irrepressible need to share what I do with my friends.” – Jonas Mekas

His many films can be re-discovered in a box set, distributed by agnès b., which includes Walden, Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania, As I was Moving Ahead Occasionally I Saw Brief Glimpses of Beauty, and other short films.
