Opening: “The Downtown Decade: NYC 1975-1985” at Rare / Glenn Horowitz Bookseller
An overview of New York’s creative scene between 1975 and 1985, this exhibition features art, music, literature and ephemera by some of the movers and shakers that made life in the city more fun back in the day. From geometric abstractions on paper by Philip Taaffe and black-and-white photographs of downtown celebs by Jimmy DeSana, Christopher Makos and Marcia Resnick, this show—which comes with its own period soundtrack playing in the gallery—has something for everyone. Snap up vintage copies of the bohemian newspaper East Village Eye and first edition books by William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg, signed by the authors.
Rare / Glenn Horowitz Bookseller, 17 West 54 Street, New York, 6-8 p.m.
