Have been busting my butt working on this two-part audio download about New York City during the time of the Abstract Expressionists. Naturally, I’ve learned all kinds of rad stuff: beer used to be 15 cents, apartments used to go for $17 a month, and when artists said they were starving, they weren’t kidding.
Also, we found all-kinds-of-awesome vintage audio of Peggy Guggenheim (describing herself at the “enfant terrible of the Guggenheim family”) and Robert Motherwell telling a particularly poignant story about Mark Rothko in the early ’50s.
Please check it out!!!
