New York, January 6, 2010 – Patti Smith and Steven Sebring collaborated for eleven years on the documentary Patti Smith: Dream of Life, which aired on PBS on December 30.  The two artists just put together an exhibition, Objects of Life, consisting of a range of works, some collaborative, some individually executed, in a celebration of the odyssey that the filming itself was.  The installation at Chelsea’s Robert Miller gallery includes significant objects belonging to Smith - her childhood dress, her Land 250 Polaroid camera, and a tambourine made by Robert Mapplethorpe - along with Sebring’s monumental photographs of these objects.

The opening night was a revolving door of celebrities and artists.  We noticed Sam Shephard wandering around the gallery, later on, his lady Jessica Lange joined him.  Filmmaker Albert Maysles, artist Ryan McGinley, Zoe Kravitz and fashion designers Calvin Klein, Zac Posen, John Bartlett, Reed Krakoff, Nicole Miller and Nanette Lepore all popped in.  Kelly Cutrone waltzed in with photographers Mary Ellen Mark and Roxanne Lowit.  Once Patti’s dear friend Michael Stipe arrived, she led him through the entire exhibit, and the two remained inseparable for the rest of the evening.
