The Times Square Show, hailed by the Village Voice as "The First Radical Art Show of the '80s," included some one hundred artists and sprawled across four floors and the basement of a disused massage parlor on the corner of 41st Street and 7th Avenue in New York City. In addition to experimental painting and sculpture, the exhibition incorporated music, fashion, and an ambitious program of performance and video. For many artists, such as Kiki Smith, Jenny Holzer and Tom Otterness, the exhibition served as a forum for the exchange of ideas, a testing-ground for work in progress, and a catalyst for exploring new artistic directions with contributions from over 40 artists of the more than 100 originally participating, Times Square Show Revisited reflects the spirit of the original with a mix of extant sculpture, painting, and video—most of which has not been on public view since 1980. The show features rarely-seen photography, archival material, and ephemera documenting the crucial role of performance, fashion, and music at the Times Square Show.
A partial list of artists represented in Times Square Show includes Charlie Ahearn / John Ahearn /Jules Allen / Beth B / Scott B / Jean-Michel Basquiat / Marc Blane / Caterina Borelli / Andrea Callard / Eva / Jane Dickson / Coleen Fitzgibbon / Bobby G / Matthew Geller / Mike Glier / Ilona Granet / Mimi Gross / Keith Haring / Julie Harrison / Jenny Holzer / Becky Howland / Francene Keery / Justen Ladda / Aline Mare / Alan Moore / Tom Otterness / Cara Perlman / Judy Rifka / Walter Robinson / Christy Rupp / Kenny Scharf / Terise Slotkin / Jane Sherry / Jack Smith / Kiki Smith / Wolfgang Staehle / Kathleen Thomas / Diane Torr / Rigoberto Torres / Robin Winters.

John Sex (John McLaughlin), and Keith Haring became Best Buddies while attending the School of Visual Arts NYC (SVA) in the late 70’s. John often used the SVA print studio to create punk-style posters for downtown bands, and later for himself. He exhibited some of his word-based art at the "Beyond Words" show at the Mudd Club – alongside artists such as Haring, Kenny Scharf, and Futura 2000 and performers Iggy Pop, Fab Five Freddy and Alan Vega – and at the "New York / New Wave" exhibition at P.S. 1, both in 1981.

Created to celebrate the opening of Damien Hirst's Requiem at the Pinchuk Art Centre Ukraine, April 25-26th 2009, with DH blind stamp/signature stamp & filing stamps from Ukraine on the verso.
Please note that this work and others from the aforementioned occasion were created with public collaboration.
Note: These psychedelic compositions that harken back to his youth in the 1960s, as “childish…in the positive sense of the word.” By the mid 1990s, spin paintings formed an integral part of his work and a spin machine in his Berlin studio allowed him to further play with the process. Since then, his spinning works have become as iconic as his meticulous “spot” paintings.
offset printed in green on white stock, original wood/glass frame from the period, Basquiat created a special drawing for the poster to publicize the "Food for the Soup Kitchens" benefit exhibition held in 1983 at Fashion Moda in the Bronx and the Store for Art and Architecture in downtown NYC. The bottom portion of the poster lists the participating artists including Basquiat, Daze, Keith Haring, Carolee Schneeman, Kiki Smith, David Wojnarowicz, and Taylor Mead, and also prints the schedule for various exhibitions and performances at the two venues.

"Kandinsky then formed a new group, the Blue Rider (Der Blaue Reiter) with like-minded artists such as August Macke, Franz Marc, Albert Bloch, and Gabriele Münter. The group released an almanac (The Blue Rider Almanac) and held two exhibits. More of each were planned, but the outbreak of World War I in 1914 ended these plans and sent Kandinsky back to Russia via Switzerland and Sweden."

His Christmas gifts were mangoes or homemade hot sauce. “He had all these wonderful recipes that were never written down.

It is said Andy Warhol himself stapled and prepared a very limited number of these.
He handed them out to people as they headed into the Gallery to see his famous Thirteen Most Wanted Men exhibition in 1967.
These rare prints are authenticated by "two small pin holes at the top left of the print which were originally left there by a staple where it had been attached to other relevant material that made up the catalogue (or dossier)"
Excellent- folder shows slight ambering due to age (over 50 years) which is normal.
No rips or tears. Inside content (sheets of paper and print) in great condition. Original staple has left a slight mark (see photo) but is considered good as proof of authenticity. Slight crease across middle as folder/catalogue/dossier was folded and kept in an old art book over time.

"Pork" opened at LaMama Theatre in New York City on May 5, 1971 and ran for two weeks before transferring to the Roundhouse Theatre. Produced by Ira Gale and directed by Anthony Ingrassia, the cast included Jayne County as Vulva, Tony Zanetta as B. Marlowe and Cherry Vanilla as Amanda Pork. "Pork" was based on tape-recorded telephone conversations between Andy Warhol and Brigid Berlin about her family's private life, and proved to be a defining counter-cultural event, which would have a significant influence on the evolution of the glam, glitter and punk movements. The London production in particular was instrumental in the transformation of David Bowie's visual style and stage presentation.
"Pork" assistant director Lee Black Childers explained, grew out of "boxes and boxes and hours and hours of cassette tapes," comprising every single telephone conversation that Warhol and Brigid Berlin had in the previous three years, and painstakingly transcribed by Warhol's long-suffering assistant Pat Hackett. "Basically, it was nothing more than a lot of pointless conversation. It was a comment on a society where nobody listens to anybody else. None of the conversations were linked, everybody just talked." Anthony Ingrassia, the show's four-hundred-pound director, painted an even more disorganized impression. Warhol's initial vision for "Pork" comprised no fewer than twenty-nine separate acts that would have lasted around two hundred hours. Ingrassia edited this down into a fast-paced two-act play that shifted its attention from a barely disguised Factory to a fairly recognizable Max's Kansas City and on to Berlin's hotel room. The lead character, Amanda Pork, was Berlin herself in all but name. Other prominent characters included Billy Noname, a businesslike gentleman named Pall, a vicious blonde superstar called Vulva, two nude men with pastel-covered genitals named the Pepsodent Twins, and, practically immobile at the heart of the action, a pale, deadpan, laconic slice of living ennui named B. Marlowe.

The place to be if you lived downtown in the late 70's, early 80's. I was a semi-regular there and how I came by these tickets is still unclear to me. They had a strict door policy and I knew plenty of the right people, which guaranteed I'd get in, so why these were even necessary, I don't know. In order to secure the space for the Mudd Club Steve Mass described it as a cabaret. Mass claimed to have started the nightclub on a budget of only $15,000. Sexy, edgy, queer and everything else. Keith Haring curated a rotating gallery on the fourth floor. Lots of great music and an awesome dj Anita Sarko. As it became more well known and part of the regular routine of night clubs, a door policy was established and it acquired an elitist reputation. This is probably when they started issuing these tickets. A piece of New York City history.

Released on Verve Records V-5008 in 1967. The banana has been peeled off the front cover. The back cover has the Torso but the Torso has been obscured by the black VU sticker pasted over it because of a lawsuit by Mr. Emerson about the use of his photo. The stickered copies are particularly rare. Please see the details below about the cover, vinyl, labels and everything else you might want to know.
Condition (cover): MUSEUM QUALITY
STRONG Excellent (EX) better gatefold cover. TOP Keeper copy would be impossible to upgrade. The banana has been peeled, but the front cover is otherwise bright white; I've never seen another so clean. The back cover has some minor age spotting, and there is a promo or deletion drill hole in the front left lower cover. The spine and seams are tight and show no wear. The gatefold cover creaks if you try and open it too far (see pics).
STRONG VG. Plays VG+ or better, with many EX moments,
small scuffs and paper marks, but nice enough MONO copy. LP cleaned on KL Audio Ultrasonic Record Cleaning Machine with a new rice paper sleeve equivalent.
Near Mint (NM) labels. Please see photos of all labels (see pics).
Original Verve factory records paper inner sleeve listing other artists etc. (see pics).
