Come Closer: Art Around the Bowery, 1969-1989
 organized by Ethan Swan

New Museum, 235 Bowery, NYC
Free Admission on Thursday Evenings from 7 p.m.–9 p.m.

an exhibition that takes the Bowery as subject, site, and center for creative ingenuity in the 1970s and 1980s. “During these two decades, the Bowery was commonly identified with the furthest extremes of metropolitan decline—municipal neglect, homelessness, and substance abuse. As landlords and civil services abandoned the neighborhood, the subsequent cheap rents and permissive atmosphere drew artists downtown. The Bowery’s lofts provided a social network where painters, photographers, performance artists, musicians, and filmmakers exchanged ideas and drew inspiration from this concentration of creative activity.”
