Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art

Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983
Through April 1, 2018
The Museum of Modern Art
The East Village of the 1970s and 1980s continues to thrive in the global public’s imagination. Located in the basement of a Polish Church at 57 St. Marks Place, Club 57 (1978–83) began as a no-budget venue for music and film exhibitions, and quickly took pride of place in a constellation of countercultural venues in downtown New York fueled by low rents, the Reagan presidency, and the desire to experiment with new modes of art, performance, fashion, music, and exhibition. A center of creative activity in the East Village, Club 57 is said to have influenced virtually every club that came in its wake. Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art weiterlesen

A Century Of Funk Rufus Thomas At 100

A Century Of Funk Rufus Thomas At 100
March 23, 2017 – August 31, 2017
Had it not been for Stax Records founder meeting Memphis music icon Rufus Thomas soon after he started his fledgling Satellite Records in 1957, Stax Records might never have become the soul and R&B powerhouse that it came to be. Having moved into the old movie theater at 926 E. McLemore Avenue to record country and rockabilly music, it was Rufus Thomas and his daughter Carla Thomas who opened Stewart’s eyes to R&B music with their regional Satellite hit, “Cause I Love You.” A Century Of Funk Rufus Thomas At 100 weiterlesen
