A friend of mine asked if I would check out the Looking at Music 3.0 exhibit at MoMA (The Yoshiko and Akio Morita Media Gallery, second floor). As a New Yorker who lived and breathed music in the 80s and 90s I’m definitely going to get my nostalgia on.
“Looking at Music 3.0, the third in a series of exhibitions exploring the influence of music on contemporary art practices, focuses on New York in the 1980s and 1990s. In this dynamic period, imaginative forms of street art spread across the five boroughs, articulating the counter-culture tenor of the times. As the city transitioned from bankruptcy to solvency, graffiti, media, and performance artists took advantage of low rents and collaborated on ad hoc works shown in alternative spaces and underground clubs.” – moma.org
