In conjunction with the Club 57 gallery exhibition, this series explores the films that took a central role in defining the club’s programming. Selected from actual Club 57 screening schedules, it spans horror, science fiction, musicals, psychedelia, 1960s mod, European art cinema, TV programs, artist’s cinema, and more. At the club, this unruly mix of genres took on new meaning through collective experience and active spectatorship against the backdrop of post-punk New York.
Organized by Ron Magliozzi, Curator, and Sophie Cavoulacos, Assistant Curator, Department of Film; with John “Lypsinka” Epperson, guest curator.
The exhibition is supported by the Annual Film Fund.
