404 East 14th Street and the East Village Art Scene – A slideshow and talk with Tom Burckhardt

The building at 404 East 14th Street began its life as a factory and a warehouse before being converted in the mid-1960s to one of New York’s first “artist loft” buildings. Among the early tenants were Claes Oldenburg & Patty Mucha, Larry Rivers, Yayoi Kusama, On Kawara, John Chamberlain, and Herb Aach. Even poet Allen Ginsberg lived here for a short time.

Artist and resident Tom Burckhardt, who last summer organized a show for Tibor de Nagy Gallery of the building’s artist-residents, will present a slideshow and discussion of the microcosm art scene of fifty years at this one special address.
