New Museum of Contemporary Art

235 Bowery




In conjunction with the exhibit Come Closer: Art Around the Bowery 1969-1989, the New Museum plays host to influential musician and former king of skronk, Arto Lindsay. Born in Virgina and raised in Brazil, Lindsay adopted New York as his home in the 1970s. He went on to form the seminal no-wave trio DNA, and also did stints with the Lounge Lizards and the Golden Palominos before birthing the late-'80s avant-pop group Ambitious Lovers with Peter Scherer. Subsequent to the Lovers' amiable divorce in the early '90s, Lindsay has enjoyed a healthy solo career, producing music that embraces Brazilian beats and transverses a number of genres. Also known to musically canoodle with the likes of They Might Be Giants, Animal Collective, John Zorn, David Byrne, Laurie Anderson, and Bill Frisell, Lindsay demonstrates tonight why he ranks among New York's most important downtown denizens by playing selections from his eclectic and fringe-dwelling musical canon.
