Speaking of Noise/Art.

Pat Maher

And speaking of the noise/art connection, this is the last weekend to see the exhilarating Noise/Art show at KS Art curated generously by Thurston Moore. It documents a pretty rough and tumble scene, and the art in the gallery follows that same line in the best of ways. It was a kick to see so many artists whose work I'd heard working things out visually. I stopped in to check it out last Saturday, and immediately started to connect some of the work to late '70's NYC downtown art and music scene. I wound up having a wonderful conversation with gallery owner Kerry Schuss about the connections. As if to highlight that, it turns out that the next show--also curated by Moore--will be No Wave. Post-Punk. Underground. New York. 1976-1980.
