Downtown NYC curator Johnny V invited Coraggio to participate in this homage to Lady Jaye—a Lower East Side fixture for a good twenty years or so, who passed away in 2007. Johnny said they were looking for “socio-sexual content” (which is certainly the most fitting tribute to Lady Jaye), so Linus contributed a piece entitled “Pussy”—an assemblage wall relief he originally created for a group show at The Gershwin Hotel in 1990 called “Sex, Death and Religion” (a reaction to the sort of second wave of Jesse Helms/Nancy Reagan-driven anti-sex and anti-art hysteria).

The opening night festivities are already over, but the artworks will remain up for about a month.
