this is an annual ritual where rick invites artists he's worked with and presented at antebellum the previous year.
in progress now is ANTEBELLUM2016.
set to be a short film paying tribute to~ 21st century culture, fetish, hollywood, nostalgia, noir, underground filmmaking, romance, and a nod to our lost icon, the end of an era on many levels.
antebellum hollywood takes great pride in presenting fetish, original ideas, new artists & established masters, queer culture, performance art, transgressive culture~ without any censorship whatsoever
on a regular basis.
we our now in our 11th year creating this space without support from institutions or corporations. antebellum is fiercely independent.
