Wild Style

While awaiting the opening of their state-of-the-art facility in the Lower
East Side, the New Museum of Contemporary Art inaugurated this week an
interim exhibition space on the ground floor of the Chelsea Art Museum.

And they could not have started this collaboration better than with East
Village USA
, an exhibition paying tribute to the sprawling, renegade art
scene that flourished in the East Village during the 1980s. On the spot a
handful of artists at the origins of street art such as Jean-Michel
, Futura 2000, Keith Haring and Kenny Scharf, but also the key sites
and happenings symbolic of the rebellious neighborhood back then: Colab,
Fashion Moda, FUN Gallery, the Real Estate Show, Club 57, the Mudd Club and
the Pyramid.
