About

Vintage original Club 57 invite, circa 1982. Club 57 was the historic East Village nightclub where Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf and so many seminal downtown artists came of age. In 2017 MoMA New York explored the club's rich history with its exhibition, "Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983." Sheet/cut lines present; otherwise very good condition for its age Measures approximately 5 x 8 inches. Obtained directly from one of the clubs original art designers A very cool frame piece indeed About Club 57 "Keith Haring’s breakthrough exhibition was at Tony Shafrazi’s Soho space in 1982, and from then on his fame was secure. But that’s the end, not the beginning, of the Brooklyn Museum’s new show “Keith Haring 1978–1982.” For the four years before that, Haring was merely one of the crowd hanging out in a church-basement rec room on St. Marks Place. It was called Club 57, named for its street address. It was, remembers the artist Kenny Scharf—a close friend of both Haring and Ann Magnuson, who presided over the club as den mother–artistic director—a place where “art merged with punk rock and lost its preciousness.” At the time, the club scene had its own rigid hiearchy. CBGB was for punks; Max’s Kansas City, which had been for Warhol Superstars, was on its way out; the Mudd Club was for “No Wave” misfits and their hard-partying hangers-on. In the basement of that Polish church on St. Marks, yet another species thrived, one that overlapped with the Mudd Club crowd but was younger, scrappier, sillier, and more earnestly experimental than the rest. Part basement den, part art gallery, part Dada cabaret, Club 57 was an ephemeral, anything-goes environment where artists and performers had carte blanche to test-drive their wildest dreams. It lasted only from 1978-1983. Scharf and Magnuson’s crew watched monster movies, read poetry, threw doo-wop dance parties, staged musical revues, played putt-putt, mounted art shows, and, on one occasion, hosted a ladies’ wrestling night where the contenders dressed up as cockroaches and nuns." {New York Magazine, 3/25/12} Related Categories Basquiat.
