No Alternative: New Downtown Art

In conjunction with the exhibition The Downtown Show: The New York Art Scene, 1974–1984

Panelists in this discussion will reflect on the legacy of Downtown art. Performance, punk, feminism, and queer activism are among the current concerns of the young artists and organizers taking part. Examining their own work, speakers will reconsider the relevance of terms like “Downtown” and “alternative.” With JD Samson, Le Tigre, musician and artist; Dean Daderko, curator; Ulrike Müller, LTTR, artist; Jeremy Wade, Chez Bushwick, dancer; Nate Lowman, artist. Moderated by Matt Wolf; Carlo McCormick, respondent.
