NIGHT Magazine, Vol. 1 #3, Xenon Special, Anton Perich, Sylvester Stallone, Muhammad Ali, 1978


Volume 1 issue #3 of Anton Perich’s NIGHT Magazine, November 1978. This special Xenon issue reflects the publication’s increasing ambition, with expanded coverage of other New York nightclubs and the addition of interviews with fashion, film and art celebrities.

Anton Perich, the publisher, editor and lead photographer of NIGHT, is also known as a video pioneer and painter.  NIGHT was inspired by Warhol’s Interview Magazine but deliberately sought to distinguish itself by emphasizing its pictorial content and using oversized pages and quality white paper stock.

Gallery 98 has acquired a collection of early issues of NIGHT and related promotional material.
