“Arte Povera was about performance, theater in the street, new materials, text, the use of language in art. It was about the idea of habitat: art not as an object but as a condition.” Between 1966 and ’69, Piper Discoteque was the site of radical architecture, experimental installation, performance art, and ephemeral participatory happenings for the Arte Povera set.

"There was a double standard: it was okay to see a woman with perfectly round, perky breasts on the side of a phone box or on Instagram, but a mother breastfeeding in a café was offensive. I decided to photograph the most British scenarios like the pub, tennis, the waterpark, bike rides, discos, festivals, museums, and people doing everyday tasks without clothes on."

"The most New York thing about New York is that it’s constantly changing. I’ve been here forever and I still don’t recognize it. It’s always changing, which is nothing to be nostalgic about. There are a lot of places that are no longer there but something else is there. Hey, I’m not someone who’s like “Oh, New York was so fantastic in those days.” When I came here it was dark--very dangerous--to get to my house on the 6th floor I had to step over maybe a hundred people nodding out in the stairways on Avenue C… but it was... great. You know, New York used to be a place where you come as a young person by yourself to try your luck. Now, I see a lot of guys who come in groups. You know, they’re all going to be hedge funders. And they all run in herds down the west side highway and I’m like “Who are these people?” They come here to make money because it’s the money capital of the world. Which… you know, it is. But my New York, when I came here as a kid, you didn’t know anybody." Tap the link in our bio for more.
Gia Garison, Nightowl "There are many places I love that I miss. One of them was the original Spectrum in Williamsburg. I had a million amazing nights at that party and found and met some of the best people that I’ve ever met in my life. That’s something that I really hold close to me. And another one would be like ELEVEN11 which was happening every Friday where I started working for a couple of months. I had a million experiences there-- some of them the best times, some of them the worst, some of them everything in-between,and I think that an amazing party has all of those moments."

"I remember the first time I saw New York, I was watching the original King Kong from 1933. I was only a child and wasn't living in New York at the time. It wasn't until I was a bit older that I realized New York wasn't just black and white, but actually the most colorful place." Tap the link in our bio for more.

"As a Native New Yorker, this city is all I know and it's essentially everything about me. We are literally a dying breed. There is a magical/ diabolical allure of the constant change, disfunction and chaos of this city. It has transformed right before my eyes leaving a transitory, impermanent feeling that radiates in my soul. NYC is my DNA - it's what makes me who I am today. The strength and vitality that beats within me is because of this astronomically powerful city. The frequency of the streets always leaves me in awe of the human condition - you can get mugged /stabbed, receive a hug, get cat-called, exchange words with a angry psycho, receive a free ice cream cone from a mister softee truck, run into a friend in a bodega you haven't seen in ages although you feel like you know everything about their lives because of social media and lastly exchange glances with your future baby daddy all in a hour on a casual afternoon stroll. The colorful characters that strut down the city’s streets - they inspire and challenge every notion of what identity is. NYC is a live case study of authenticity and what it means to truly be free to express yourself and by being free, I mean in every sense of the word. I miss the sex shops on Sixth Avenue."

[Rujeko] "I really miss Tower Records. It was downtown on Broadway; I spent a lot of 6th grade there. I loved it for all of the reasons you’d think - browsing, listening to music at the music stations (that you didn’t buy), people watching, fashion inspiration, a place to meet your friends, cheap entertainment."

"My first memory of New York is being in the NY Studio program. When I was a junior in college I had this residency in TriBeCa and I would go to club Shelter on Varick street every Saturday. But I was super dirt poor, almost on food stamps, so I would save $20 a week to get in and just dance to house music till 3--I mean, 3pm the next day..." Tap the link in our bio for more.

"A lot of people come here when they’re children. I didn’t come here until I was like in my late teens, early 20s. And I took a cab from the airport. I got out cash from the ATM and that was the only money I had and by the time I got to Manhattan and saw the fare, I was like 'Oh my god, I have nothing left.' And I had to go see my friend Alex Dondero and ask him to borrow money. Thank god I had him. That’s my first memory: coming here completely broke. Like actually with no dollars."

"My most memorable New York moment would be after I graduated school the first apartment that I lived in and realizing that I am on my own, that basically I could do whatever I want, and that I was now an adult. I do remember that very fondly. My first apartment was on the Upper, Upper, Upper West Side. It was the late 80’s and New York was very different than it is now, and I have to say, not always for the better. There was still that grit that was still around from the 60’s and 70s-- there was something really special about that time in New York."
