Loretta Howard and Tim Nye are pleased to present “Max’s Kansas City, 1965-1974” at Art Basel Miami Beach, Stand F04. The fair is open to the public from December 1st through December 4th. A flash point for alternative culture, Max’s Kansas City was a testing ground for a new generation of art, music, film and fashion. The back room played host to Andy Warhol and his factory and film entourage, as well as a rotating cast of larger than life musicians from the New York Dolls and Janis Joplin to Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground. Attracted by the nightly free dinners and intellectually charged environment, the front room became a daily haunt for pop artists Robert Rauschenberg and Roy Lichtenstein as well as a new generation of artists like Dan Flavin, Ronald Bladen, and Carl Andre. While the bar became famous for its hard-drinking debates, its walls displayed important new works, which the proprietor, Mickey Ruskin traded in exchange for bar tabs. “Max’s Kansas City” is a tribute to the creative confluence that the space came to embody. Through a multimedia presentation including films, music, photography, paintings and sculpture, the Miami exhibition highlights the complex intellectual environment and incredible diversity of ideas at the legendary venue. The booth, designed by founder Mickey Ruskin’s daughter, Victoria Ruskin, evokes the atmosphere of the now legendary establishment. Works by Alice Aycock, Lynda Benglis, Brigid Berlin, Robert Mapplethorpe, Frank Stella, Joseph Kosuth, Willem de Kooning and Larry Poons, Marisol, Dorothea Rockburne and Vito Acconci bring back to life the rare milieu where pop, minimalist, conceptual and New York School artists ate, drank and debated side by side.
