Max's Kansas City

Marcia Resnick... Lydia Lunch and James Chance (1978, Archival pigment). From the exhibition Max's Kansas City at Steven Kasher Gallery. "...There has never been a more exciting collision of art, music, and glamour than at Max's Kansas City in the 1960s and 70s. At Max's you could hang out with Andy Warhol, argue about art with John Chamberlain, or get a record deal just by showing up. Downstairs the artists were paying tabs with original art, upstairs was home to the iconoclastic New York music scene, featuring the Velvet Underground, the New York Dolls, and yet undiscovered stars such as Bruce Springsteen, Bob Marley, Blondie, Iggy Pop, and Madonna. Max’s incubated more artists and musicians in New York’s 60s and 70s cultural heyday than any other scene."
