‘GoNightclubbing’ Punk Exhibit Comes to the 72 Gallery
The duo behind the GoNightclubbing punk rock canon are dusting off the archives for another public viewing. This time at the 72 Gallery on Orchard Street.
It’s the perfect match, given the gallery’s milieu is punk.
Dubbed “She Got a TV Eye on Me,” the exhibit is a curation of video, photographs, and ephemera shot and showcased by Emily Armstrong and Pat Ivers. These two were at the forefront of the burgeoning Seventies scene and captured priceless moments in time.
More about their work:
The GoNightclubbing Archive is an unparalleled collection of 82 bands videotaped during 112 performances, 27 on-camera interviews, and a remarkable assortment of music videos, video art, thousands of photographs, video DJ reels, and hundreds of pages of ephemera chronicling the late 70’s punk scene.
Opening is tonight with a launch party. The installation runs through November 27.
