laurie anderson, trisha brown and gordon matta-clark are three key figures in the burgeoning arts scene in downtown ny in the 70s. all three were friends and worked closely together creating a vibrant community in the midst of the recession. their work had multidisciplinary approach blurring the boundries between different art forms and taking them outside of galleries and off the stage.  the ideas and process of the art work/ performance was more important than the finished object. again, like many great artists in the past they broke the rules and introduced us to a whole new way of experiencing art.

when you go to see it, bear in mind that there are performances included as well. these should not be missed. some images below.
