    Club 57 was a countercultural hub located in the basement of a Polish church at 57 St. Marks Place in Manhattan’s East Village where artists, musicians, performers, and curators met to exchange ideas, party, and show new work. The exhibition at MoMA presents their accomplishments across a range of disciplines—from film, video, performance, and theater to photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, zines, fashion design, and curating.

    Inspired by the the club’s cheaply made xerox flyers, Damien Saatdjian and Eva Bochem-Shur designed an identity system with large, graphic typography, and a neon title wall. The advertising, posters, and flyers used photographs from parties and performances, along with works of art created by attendees.
