What inspired the exhibition?
The exhibition is a result of Steve's and my interest in nightclubs, dance music, nightclub culture, vintage nightclub invitations and old photos of nightclub scenes. Steve and I actually met through the Ebay.com website when I was auctioning off my excess club kid card collection about two years ago. The club kid cards were a series of club invites printed around 1991 by the Limelight nightclub in NYC featuring nightlife celebutantes on the front and a party invite on the back. Once Steve and I began corresponding we discovered that we both had invite collections and eventually I invited Steve to my home in the Bronx to look through the 1000s of photos of clubbers in my collection. When Steve proposed an exhibit I immediately began cooperating with him as my collection had just sat for almost two decades in my closets unseen by anybody. So essentially this event is debutante party for the part of the exhibit that features my photos and ephemera.
