Art & Design
Nights to Remember
Max’s Kansas City, the Cedar Tavern, Area, Mudd Club, Studio 54, Limelight, the Beatrice—New York’s dens of iniquity have long held an allure for the art crowd. And for "And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music," a group show at New York’s Friedman Benda gallery, artists have taken nightlife as their muse. Here, a few of them recollect those bygone nights that have inspired their work. The show opens Tuesday, July 16th, with, of course, a raucous party.
