Jam packed with images ranging from paintings and performance to club flyers and nightlife photos, this is the roller-coaster story of the late 1970s - early 1980s New York City East Village club, film, music and art scenes as told through the history of Club 57 on St. Marks Place.
  • ABOUT THE NIGHTCLUB: Club 57 was a nightclub located at 57 St. Mark's Place in the East Village, New York City during the late 1970s and early 1980s. It was founded by Stanley Zbigniew Strychacki. It was a hangout and venue for performance- and visual-artists and musicians. Keith Haring had his first New York show at Club 57; Guest DJs included Johnny Dynell and Afrika Bambaataa; Club 57 hosted movies, Drag Queens, Punk Rock shows, art exhibitions, fashion shows, poetry readings, new wave bands, no wave cinema, and performance art. Performers and artists include: Madonna, Kenny Scharf, Jean Michel Basquiat, Klaus Nomi, Joey Arias, John Sex, John Ahearn, Divine, Taboo!, John Epperson (Lypsinka), Tseng Kwong Chi, Kitty Brophy, Fab Five Freddy, Cookie Mueller, Steve Buschemi, The Fleshtones, and B52s. Theme Nights included: Monster Movie Club.
  • ABOUT THE BOOK: Curators at MOMA researched every single event at the club for 4 years - 1978-1983. Includes a day-by-day chronological timeline of club events, illustrated with club flyers, film stills, posters, photos, and artworks. The Book starts with high manic energy but ends with AIDS and gentrification. Can be shelved in CULTURAL history, MUSIC, FILM, or ART.
  • PRESS & PROMO: Exhibition at MOMA opens October 2017 through April 2018
  • ABOUT THE AUTHORS: Ron Magliozzi, Sophie Cavulacos, Laura Hoptman, Lucy Gallun are MOMA curators. J. Hoberman, is an American film critic, who worked at The Village Voice from the 1970s to 2012. He is the author of Film After Film: (Or, What Became of 21st Century Cinema?) (Verso). Jenny Schlenzka is Director of Performance Space 122. Ann Magnuson, Performance artist, is writer now based in LA; she was the manager of Club 57 from 1979-1989.
  • QUOTE: Ann Magnuson describes Club 57 as a place for "pointy-toed hipsters, girls in rockabilly petticoats, spandex pants, and thrift-store stiletto heels...suburban refugees who had run away from home to find a new family...who liked the things we liked--Devo, Duchamp, and William S. Burroughs--and (more important) hated the things we hated--disco, Diane von Furstenberg, and The Waltons."

THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART

Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983

Edited with text by Ron Magliozzi, Sophie Cavoulacos. Text by J. Hoberman, Jenny Schlenzka, Laura Hoptman, Lucy Gallun, Ann Magnuson.

How one small, no-budget club became a crucible of East Village creativity

The East Village of the 1970s and 1980s continues to thrive in the public’s imagination around the world. Located in the basement of a Polish Church at 57 St. Mark's Place, Club 57 (1978–83) began as a no-budget venue for music and film exhibitions, and quickly took pride of place in a constellation of countercultural venues in downtown Manhattan fueled by low rents, the Reagan presidency, and the desire to experiment with new modes of art, performance, fashion, music, and exhibition. A center of creative activity in the East Village, Club 57 is said to have influenced virtually every club that came in its wake.

Published to accompany the first major exhibition to examine this scene-changing, seminal alternative space in full, Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 taps into the legacy of its founding curatorial staff to examine how the club environment of New York in the 1970s and 1980s became a model for a new spirit of interdisciplinary endeavor. The richly illustrated publication features film and video stills, photographs of club events and activities, ephemeral documents such as flyers, posters and period zines, and a robust plate section of rarely seen artwork from the period by the likes of Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf, Tseng Kwong Chi, Kitty Brophy, Fab Five Freddy, Richard Hambleton, Dan Asher, Ellen Berkenblit and John Sex.
