Harvey Wang, John Sex at ‘Club 57 Night’ at Mudd Club, Vintage Silver Gelatin Signed Print, 1981


Archival silver-gelatin print; from an edition of 10 signed by artist, 11 x 14 in.

This striking image of the infamous alternative performance artist John Sex (1956 -1990) was taken during  “Club 57 Night” at the Mudd Club.  During this Mudd Club event, regulars from Club 57 recreated a mix of the dress-up themes (like this spoof of the Playboy Clubs) that were the mainstay of Club 57.
