MoMA Reading: Performing Difference: Gender in the 1980s Downtown Scene, a symposium

A moving experience and honor to help get a screening of the Diane Torr documentary MAN FOR A DAY at The Museum of Modern Art, and then to read a piece from my book-in-progress (at MoMA!) about Club 57, the early 80’s in NYC, a near death experience, and Diane’s and my early collaboration at St. Marks Danspace in 1982. It was the first part of the day-long above mentioned event/symposium, in conjunction with MoMA’s exhibition, “Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983.” Thank you, MoMA curators Ron Magliozzi and Sophie Cavoulacos.
