DESCRIPTION

"Sex At The Disco...Sexual Playground 1970-1980" – photography by Veretta Cobler; NYC based fashion fine art photographer and author. Images from the Veretta’s book, "New York Underground 1970-1980," along with several never before seen vintage prints depicting the orgasmic culture, extravagant fashion and uninhibited party scenarios of New York City's infamous Disco era, will be on display during this exhibition. During this period, themed parties such as circus, Hollywood, dance theatre, techno and diva drama became popularized. Through photography, Veretta documented this club scene that blossomed during this pre-AIDS peak of the Disco era, happening alongside the rise of the Women's Liberation and The Gay Right's Movement.

An opening celebration will be held on Friday, December 6th from 6-9 PM with a vintage and limited edition print and book signing by the photographer. Catering will be provided by Kymara Happenings and music by Isis Vermouth and DJ Fowl Play.

Saturday, December 7th, there will be a Q&A with the photographer from 2-4 PM.
