This major exhibition is dedicated to the investigation of The East Village of the 1970s and 1980s, whose Club 57 was a no-budget venue for music and film exhibitions. A center of creative activity in the East Village, Club 57 influenced virtually every club that came in its wake.
The exhibition fully examine the multidisciplinary aspect of this movement and how the convergence of film, video, performance, art, and curatorship in the club environment of New York in the 1970s and 1980s became a model for a new spirit of interdisciplinary endeavor. The exhibition features many works that have not been exhibited publicly since the 1980s.
