MOMA acquires Club 57 flyer from Coraggio

MOMA acquires Club 57 flyer from Coraggio for historic  documentation retrospective on the famed East Village nightclub. Curator Sophie Cavoulacas  admitted the purchase price was more than usually paid for documentation ephemera.

Club 57 was the upbeat counterpoint to the more down edgy nightclub life of the also famed mud club, both were seminal cultural meccas of the early early 1980’s art scene where scores of now legendary artists and musicians showed, played and reveled in autonomous ecstasy.
