“It was a time of William Burroughs and Andy Warhol; CBGBs and the Mudd club; Punks, Rappers and Semiotext(e); ‘Downtown ’81’ and TV Party. And although I may be the protagonist in this exhibition, these photos are more about that time.” —Walter Steding
Walter Steding, an avant-garde musician and visual artist who became Andy Warhol’s painting assistant during the 80s, took hundreds of photographs during his time at Warhol’s Factory, and of the adjacent Downtown scene of New York. Tonight’s photo exhibition includes a print of Andy Warhol’s Haircut #1, and a live performance by Walter Steding at 7pm. The performance starts with music from the days of Marty Thau’s Red Star Records through to Walter’s present work with the band Crazy Mary.
