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.
