Wed, Oct 30, 2013  12–6 PM

Be among the first to see this exhibition, which illuminates a radical period of 1970s performance art that flourished in downtown Manhattan—or “Rented Island,” in the words of filmmaker and performance artist Jack Smith—and still remains largely unknown today. 

This event is open to all members, plus one guest. Become a member, or upgrade your membership by calling (212) 570-3641.
