New York: P.S. 1, 1981. Item #5329
Poster designed by Randolph Black. Offset printed. 22 x 34 in. Near fine, creased from storage.
Featuring the New York/New Wave exhibition curated by Diego Cortez, this poster includes all upcoming programming at P.S. 1 and Clocktower from February to April 1981. New York/No Wave was in the special exhibition gallery and included work by 118 artists, just about every New York artist producing compelling work at the time – including Kathy Acker, Henry Chalfant, Robert Mapplethorpe, Keith Haring, Nan Goldin, Marcia Resnick, Lydia Lunch, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Crash, Lawrence Weiner, and many more. An early example of the intermingling of the emerging graffiti and hip-hop culture with punk culture and LGBTQ culture in New York across boroughs. The show became legendary for launching many careers; this was Basquiat’s first museum exhibition.
