In Which Twenty People Offer Fond Memories About Barry McGee On The Occasion Of His Midcareer Survey Show At The Boston ICA

Barry-Mcgee-schubert

I really didn’t even want to try interviewing Barry McGee about his show opening tomorrow in my hometown at the Boston ICA. He’s well known to be hard to pin down and clearly doesn’t enjoy doing them. So instead, I asked a few people to write a sentence or two about him. It says a great deal about Barry that so many artists, some who know him well personally and some who do not, got back to me with such alacrity.

Pump Me Up: D.C. Subculture of the 1980s

On view now at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Pump Me Up: D.C. Subculture of the 1980s is Roger Gastman’s gift to what was once Chocolate City. Tracing the history of the underground scenes in Washington, D.C., during the 80s, the exhibition is heavy on rare, cultural artifacts from the worlds of Go-Go music, graffiti, and a world famous punk and hardcore scene… as well as in-depth look at notorious “Mayor For Life” Marion Barry. A must see.

There are a series of events coinciding with the exhibition you should check out as well.

“The sheets were laying on the floor of this Police station for 10+ years until I came along and rescued them. The city should have done a better job at securing or destroying these records. Shit was found in an abandoned police station that has since been demolished. This art cures relationship woes. Guaranteed to make you single.” – RIME
