Steve Joester: Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll
Aug 22 – Sep 18, 2013
"Steve Joester: Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll" will open at Lawrence Fine Art, East Hamtpon, with a reception of Thursday, August 22, from 5-9 pm.
One of the themes the gallery has been pursuing this summer--for example, in "LA ROC: Not Keith Haring" and now with "Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll"--is to revisit the art of the 70s and 80s and the confluence of pop culture, art and even music of those times.
It was a rough and raw period in the arts--think Basquiat and the development of graffiti art. There was intense cultural experimentation across media.
British-born Joester photographed many of the iconic rock and roll images of that period. Steve's new work and show is a look at this period and its cultural experimentation by revisiting the iconic images of the period that he shot but is now reinterpreting using mixed media and other forms of experimentation.
