Studio 54 was and remains the most notorious nightclub in history. It defined New York’s nightlife in the late 70s. Rents were low at the time and this proved to be very attractive to artists, designers and all denizens of bohemia. New York was a melting pot of culture and ideas, where people from different social strata could mingle in clubs like Studio 54.
It was a very queer club – guys would be quite literally doing it on the dancefloor. The New York of today is more of a playground for high-income people. Studio 54 would never happen under the current economic and social climate, but oh what bliss it was in that dawn to dance to Donna Summer. This exhibition chronicles all things Studio 54 through costume, drawings, photos and other 70s disco memorabilia.
