I'm back and feeling better.
Check out the Show at the Warhol now. The one on the NY art Scene from 1974-84. It's just so relevant to this city at this time and also so relevant to artists.
That was a time when NY wasn't loved by too many people. It was also the last place in which artists were not being followed around by real estate developers. Although, I was living in NY at that time. I was a kid for most of that period and lived in Queens. In a place Archie Bunker would have felt more at home in than the Ramones.
I will post on this again and hopefully have some links or something, if i can figure that out.
