FRESH FACES FROM THE 1970s
An evening of art, film, and conversation
Marc H. Miller of online Gallery 98 in conversation with
three boundary-pushing artists from the 1970s
NEKE CARSON. As a performance artist and maker of objects, Carson’s
transgressive humor made him a media favorite in the 1970s. His
provocative oeuvre includes: “guerilla performances” in Soho galleries
without permission; his notorious paintings; and
audience-participation pieces that redefined the relationship between
viewers and art. Neke will explain all and show the short video “I Love You.”

COLETTE. Famous in the 1970s for her sleeping performances in store
windows and art spaces, her live-in environments, her “fine art”
street graffiti for which she was once arrested, and her forays into
fashion and music, Colette was a familiar presence in both nightclubs
and museums. She will share her art philosophy and introduce “Pirate
in Venice,” a short film about her recent participation in the Venice Biennale.

ANTON PERICH. Always with his camera at hand, Perich was both a
documenter and provocateur in the 1970s. He contributed to Interview
Magazine, and created new venues like his pioneering cable television
show and Night Magazine. He also made paintings with “electronic
brushstrokes” created by a painting machine that he first invented in
the 1970s. Anton will talk about his paintings and screen excerpts
from his controversial cable show.

MARC H. MILLER. Miller, whose website 98 Bowery, a chronicle of his
journey as an artist, curator and journalist in the 1970s inspired the
recent New Museum exhibition “Come Closer: Art Around the Bowery,
1969-89,” is the host of the evening. Gallery 98 specializes in art
and ephemera from that period.
