Growing Up In The New York Underground:
From Glam To Punk

Paul Zone


The mid-1970s was a time when the death of glam and the birth of punk collided in a celebration of glitter and grime, and fourteen-year old Paul Zone had a front-row seat to it all. Growing Up In The New York Underground: From Glam To Punk, presented by Tony Zanetta and Kymara, features more than seventy rare images from Zone's life in New York's music underground in the 1970s, and its legendary players.

Featured photographs include, Blondie, Debbie Harry, The Ramones, The New York Dolls, Iggy and the Stooges, The Dead Boys, Suicide, T. Rex, The Fast, and KISS, as well as musicians, artists, and scene-sters such as Richard Hell, Johnny Thunders, Patti Smith, Lou Reed, Jayne County, Alice Cooper, Lance Loud, Stephen Sprouse, Christopher Makos, Anya Phillips, Cherry Vanilla, Arturo Vega, Anna Sui, Sable Starr, James Chance, Lydia Lunch, and more.

More images are shared in Zone’s incredible photo memoir PLAYGROUND: Growing Up in the New York Underground. An opening celebration and book launch will be held on Friday, May 29th from 6-9 PM featuring Superstar DJ Miss. Guy and host Howie Pyro.

Opening Reception: May 29, 6-9 pm
Talk and Book signing: May 30, 4-6pm

On the Domestic Front: Scenes of Everyday Queer Life

Curated by James M. Saslow


On the Domestic Front features over 80 works from the Leslie-Lohman Museum collection and a few strategic loans reveal much about the social history of LGBT life today, yesterday, and nearly a century before yesterday and answers the question, "What do gay people do when they're not having sex?"

This exhibition is timely in a decade that has seen the unprecedented mushrooming of gay marriage, child-rearing, and domesticity, and increasing acceptance both legally and socially. The thrust of queer politics has shifted from asserting our right to be different and erotic toward demanding the rights of everyone else. The show will contribute to a long-running socio-political debate within the LGBTQ world: are we, apart from our sexuality, “just like everyone else.”

Opening Reception: August 14, 6 - 8 pm
