Max’s Kansas City Exhibition

Submitted by on Saturday, 18 September 2010No Comment

SATURDAY 18

Steven Kasher Gallery is proud to announce the exhibition Max’s Kansas City, featuring over 150 vintage and limited edition photographs, and monumental sculptures and paintings by the inner circle of Max’s artists, including John Chamberlain, Forrest Myers, Larry Zox, Neil Williams, and Andy Warhol.  A highlight will be Myers’s recreation of his famous laser/jukebox installation.

The exhibition will launch Max’s Kansas City: Art, Glamour, Rock and Roll (Abrams Image, Sept 2010), a vibrant chronicle of the famed venue. The book will feature luminous photography by Bob Gruen, Anton Perich and others, and writing by Lou Reed, Lenny Kaye, Danny Fields, Lorraine O’Grady, and Steven Watson. It is edited by Steven Kasher.

There has never been a more exciting collision of art, music, and glamour than at Max’s Kansas City in the 1960s and 70s. At Max’s you could hang out with Andy Warhol, argue about art with John Chamberlain, or get a record deal just by showing up. Downstairs the artists were paying tabs with original art, upstairs was home to the iconoclastic New York music scene, featuring the Velvet Underground, the New York Dolls, and yet undiscovered stars such as Bruce Springsteen, Bob Marley, Blondie, Iggy Pop, and Madonna.  Max’s incubated more artists and musicians in New York’s 60s and 70s cultural heyday than any other scene.

Steven Kasher Gallery, 521 W 23rd St bet Tenth and Eleventh Aves, NYC, 212-966-3978, Tues-Sat 11am-6pm, through October 9
