Studio 54’s lasting influence on American tradition will be examined in a new exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum.
Disco, fashion, consuming, design, medication, tunes, sexual intercourse, independence — the legendary nightclub lived up to its buzz night time immediately after night. Founders Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager ushered in an era of artistic expression, gender fluidity, sociopolitics and the chance that every person can be a star — if only for a evening.
Spanning from April 26, 1977, by Feb. 2, 1980, (“when Steve and Ian experienced to go away for a little while”), “Studio 54: Evening Magic” capabilities 650 objects from vogue, images, drawings, film, phase sets and new music. Following a raid in December 1978, Schrager and Rubell plead guilty and served time in prison for federal tax evasion. Then-President Obama granted Schrager a presidential pardon in 2017 (Rubell died in 1989). The display opens to the community Friday and will run by means of July 5.
