L-R: Susan Rothenberg, Ned Smyth, Joan Jonas

Ned Smyth

“112 Greene Street” organized by Ned Smyth is now on view through March 5th at James Salomon, 508 West 26th Street.

Exhibiting artists include Alice Aycock, Bill Beckley, Louise Bourgeois, Chris Burden, Mary Heilmann, Joan Jonas, Dickie Landry, Dennis Oppenheim, Susan Rothenberg, Carolee Schneemann, Ned Smyth, George Trakas, and Jackie Winsor.

In the heart of SoHo in the early seventies, 112 Greene Street emerged as one of the essential arenas to see, hear, perform, or show contemporary art. There were concerts by Philip Glass, Steve Reich, and Dickie Landry; and performances by Mabou Mines, Suzy Harris, Tina Girouard, and Joan Jonas. Gordon Matta-Clark and Jeffrey Lew, the founders of 112, created a groundbreaking non-commercial exhibition space that made no restrictions on its artists and their creations.

Alberta Wright

In 1973, Alberta Wright opened Jezebel, one of the first and amongst the most celebrated vintage clothing stores in New York City. Located on the Upper West Side, regulars included a young Al Pacino looking for 1960’s over washed bell bottom jeans and an equally young but not so innocent Faye Dunaway who favored 30’s Chanel and Fortuny. In 1982, Alberta took a ground floor lease on the corner of 45th and 9th avenue where she ran a salon/restaurant, appropriately named Jezebel, for over 24 years. Alberta embodies the true entrepreneurial spirit of this city and has been and continues to be an inspiration to multiple generations of fashion and culinary converts. Alberta is currently looking for space in Harlem where she now lives and hopes to open up another incarnation of Jezebel in the near future.
