PERFORMING ARTISTS 1972-1982

Photographs by Peter Cunningham

An exhibition at 350 Bleecker Street Gallery in New York City through December 2017.

The show is visible from the street 24 hours a day.

Opening night is Wednesday October 25 from 6-8.

“These photographs were made in the fertile time between the end of the Vietnam War and the advent of MTV.  In that intense period we felt a visceral need for poetic language in the form of live expression. In the 1980’s, music-television changed the culture of performance. There was no longer any need to leave the house, no longer any danger that our freshly pressed shirts would ever be soiled with the salty sweat of a live performer.”

PETER'S WORKTABLE

What follows are today's experiments in combining images from this body of work. In the future I'd like to make more cards and also to make limited edition large prints of some of these choices. This is the form that attracts me in my other work, complementary combinations......coupling....mating.....intercourse between entities.....like that
