MAD is one of several locations throughout New York City exhibiting the @aidsmemorialquilt during #PrideMonth2019. Created to commemorate the lives lost to the AIDS pandemic, the quilt has grown from a single panel made in 1987 to more than 49,000 individual panels. A living historical artifact and an ongoing work of community art, the Quilt continues to be exhibited globally. The magnificent 12x12 foot panel on display in MAD’s public lobby memorializes the Broadway community who worked backstage and in front of the footlights. #AIDSquilt #LGBTQ #NYCPride #WorldPride #loveislove

🔊Now on view, “Roger Brown: Virtual Still Lifes” brings renewed attention to one of Chicago’s most prominent queer artists of the postwar era. A painter of atmospheric depictions of architecture, landscapes, and stylized social dramas, Brown was also an avid collector and influential champion for art and material culture produced outside of the mainstream art world. Many of these objects became integral components of Brown’s canvasses and sculpture as the artist blurred the concrete and pictorial to elevate the tension between the real and the virtual. Brown died from complications of AIDS in 1997. In 2004, he was inducted posthumously into the Chicago LGBT Hall of Fame. #RogerBrown #pride

Andrew Krivine, pictured here with designer @beingmalcolmgarrett, is the admittedly obsessed collector of the hundreds of #PunkGraphics on view in our exhibition Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die (just a fraction of his entire collection of punk and new wave design). Listen to an in-depth 📻 interview w/ Krivine, along w/ 2 hours of punk music. (music & interview begins at 3 min mark) http://bit.ly/MostlySingles #NYMM2019

@rodenwalder So last night I went to check out the new Punk Graphics exhibit @madmuseum on punk rock’s influence on graphic design. Features more than 400 originals, dating back to the 70s-80s, from posters and album covers, to film showings of concerts and interviews from back in the day, ranging from the Ramones to Black Flag, Joy Division and Talking Heads, CBGB flyers...In full, a showdown of New York as the epicenter of the punk movement and how it shaped music, design and popular culture (and London) They even had some pretty decent records to flip and listen through. Tight event. Best part - Anything and everything Sex Pistols. Worst part - Nothing Misfits in sight, and that sucks because there was a horror punk section and the Crimson Ghost should have been there front and center. Honorable mention - Lou Reed. Somehow he always makes it to all things NYC related lately, as he should. And being the me I am, taking this to heart and making a write up on my stories on “Why The Misfits Don’t Suck” so we can talk about that. We can also talk about my pants, or the fact that I lose absolute control of what my hands do the moment a camera is on me. Also, stripes and shapes ✊🏻💀
