Armond White joins us on stage for a one-of-a-kind tribute to the King of Pop. White will also be signing his new book Keep Moving: The Michael Jackson Chronicles.
Michael Jackson’s pioneering work in music video raised the art form from cable television footnote to the highest standards set by the movie musical tradition—and invented a few more along the way. Cultural critic and author Armond White returns to the Walter Reade Theater to reacquaint us with Jackson’s singular music video innovations.
“When Hollywood didn’t come calling, Jackson responded with a series of short musical films that displayed his affection for pop tradition,” says White. “From the popular Thriller to the great Black or White and other landmarks, Jackson—the ultimate performer-as-auteur—changed the way the world responds to cinema.”
