New York Underground 1973–1990

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

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.
