One of the most celebrated directors in American independent cinema, John Waters (featured in our August 2010 issue) is at his vibrant best when flaunting Hollywood’s rules or reveling in bad taste. The director of Pink Flamingos (1972) and Pecker (1998) brings the same wit and audacity to the art gallery.
