MEET ME IN THE BATHROOM: THE ART SHOW
CURATED BY HALA MATAR AND LIZZY GOODMAN
September 4th – 22nd, 2019

The Hole is proud to present a thematic exhibition and performance series based on the book by Lizzy Goodman, Meet Me In the Bathroom an oral history of the rebirth of rock and roll in New York from 2001-2011. If the goal of the book, Meet Me in the Bathroom, was to transport the reader to the last era of dirty, druggy, manically joyful New York City, the goal of Meet Me in the Bathroom: The Art Show is to color in the sensory reality of that place. What did it really feel like to be in the birthplace of the American dream as the sun set on the 20th century? Through artworks made by the musicians whose work defined this era, the visual artists who were inspired by those sounds, and the artists whose legacy influenced both – plus performances by the bands themselves – we will generate a portal to the past that also serves as a prologue to the present.

If the goal of the book, Meet Me in the Bathroom, was to transport the reader to the last era of dirty, druggy, maniacally joyful New York City, the goal of Meet Me in the Bathroom: The Art Show is to color in the sensory reality of that place. What did it feel like to be in the birthplace of the American dream as the sun set on the 20th century?

Through memorabilia, polaroids, and over 70 artworks made by the musicians whose work defined this era, the visual artists who were inspired by those sounds, and the artists whose legacy influenced both—plus performances by the bands themselves—the exhibition generates a portal to the past that also serves as a prologue to the present.

The exhibition includes new and archival works by Rita Ackermann, Doug Aitken, Urs Fischer, Dan Colen, Nate Lowman, Rob Pruitt, and more. They are featured alongside artworks by musicians including Fischerspooner, Fabrizio Moretti of The Strokes, and Karen O and Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
