Permanent Installation on the Outside Patio of New Howl! Happening Art Space

Howl! Happening Gallery has picked out a bunch of Linus’s sculptural furniture pieces for permanent installation on their huge outdoor patio in their new space across from the New Museum on the Bowery.

Also, a collector who works at Phillips Auction House has acquired a number of Linus’s opening show invites from his more seminal shows in the 1980s: including the massive Terminal New York show in 1983 and several shows at A’s Salon, Rivington School and the infamous Gas Station spaces.

October 14, 2014 The L.E.S. Scene: Then and Now

“The L.E.S. Scene: Then and Now”—which opens this Thursday and runs through the rest of the month—is a survey of artists that were active on the Lower East Side in the 80s, many of whom are still around, living and working in the area.

Coraggio’s “Forged Figurative Gear” candlestick will be exhibited—the only piece in the show to be displayed on a pedestal on the gallery floor, the rest being hung on the walls.
