I'm very pleased to announce that my photographs are featured in Looking at Music 3.0, which opens today and runs through June 6 at the Museum of Modern Art. I am also releasing a special print edition of one of my images in the show.

Looking at Music 3.0 explores the influence of music on contemporary art practices in New York in the 1980s and 1990s.

The show includes works by Laurie Anderson, the Beastie Boys, Keith Haring, Laura Levine, Christian Marclay, Brian Eno, David Byrne, John Zorn, Steven Parrino, Kathleen Hanna and Le Tigre, Run DMC, Lee Quinones, Miranda July, Run-DMC, Kraftwerk, Sonic Youth, Tony Oursler, the Residents, Spike Jonze, Afrika Bambaataa, Spike Lee, Karen Finley, Diamanda Galas, John Kelly, et. al., as well as a related film series.
The Museum of Modern Art, 11 West 53rd Street, The Yoshiko and Akio Morita Media Gallery, second floor. The exhibition is organized by Barbara London, Associate Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art.
In conjunction with the show I'll be releasing a limited edition archival pigment ink print of my 1981 portrait of Tina Weymouth & Grandmaster Flash, one of the images in the show. The photo was originally shot for the cover of the New York Rocker back in 1981.

For the run of the show, a special edition of Tina Weymouth & Grandmaster Flash, NYC, 1981 is available at a special price, starting at $95. Each archival pigment print in this limited edition is printed on Cansone Platine Fibre Rag paper, numbered, titled and hand-signed by the artist.
Print purchasing info here and here.

The image is also available as a signed limited edition silver gelatin photographic print - please contact Laura Levine at for more info.

Thanks Marc, Dale, Noah, Tim, Yuko, Robert and Katherine! I visited the show this week and it's a lot of fun. It's largely comprised of video/audio (I'm the only photographer), with a big sofa/bed thing to flop down on, a giant video screen, vibrantly colored walls, etc. Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz came, and dang, she looks the same as she did thirty years ago when I took that photo.
