CORBETT VS. DEMPSEY

Jimmy Wright: Bathhouse, Meatpacking District and the Dream Cards

New York Underground 1973–1990

Edited by Emily Letourneau. Text by John Corbett. Interview by Jim Dempsey.

"Trinity" (1975) is reproduced from 'Jimmy Wright: Bathhouse, Meatpacking District and the Dream Cards.'Bathhouse, Meatpacking District and the Dream Cards presents a selection of drawings from the 1970s by Jimmy Wright (born 1944). Made just as Wright hit New York City, these works chart his engagement with the subculture of gay bathhouses and clubs, and the more colorful side of street life on the Lower East Side. An insightful observer of human behavior deeply engaged with the action himself, Wright was the fascinated documentarian of a fleeting scene. By the 1980s he had turned this attention inward, to his own dream life, which he religiously charted in sketches and annotations on what he called “dream cards.” Bathhouse, Meatpacking District and the Dream Cards brings these three bodies of drawings together with an interview of the artist conducted by Jim Dempsey and an essay by John Corbett.

Jimmy Wright: Bathhouse, Meatpacking District and the Dream Cards

"Anvil #1" (1975) is reproduced from Jimmy Wright: Bathhouse, Meatpacking District and the Dream Cards, Corbett vs. Dempsey's new collection of the artist's drawings of the gay underground scene, 1973-1990. Wright arrived in New York in 1974—the apex of punk and disco, and a landmark era in gay history. He partook in the queer nightlife that was flourishing on the city's lower west side, drawing what he saw, "a participant observational artist very much in the same spirit as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec at the Moulin Rouge, James Ensor at the carnival in Ostend, or George Grosz on the streets of Berlin," John Corbett writes. "His eye is unflinching, but like David Hockney, it's also got a celebratory zeal, capturing something of the magic and mayhem of the activity." continue to blog
