By the mid-1960s, New York's art establishment was out of step with the city's diversity and had largely ignored the decade's social, political, and cultural ferment. In response, marginalized artists created an oppositional network of organizations, exhibit spaces, and cooperative galleries that both paralleled and challenged the status quo. Alternative art New York, 1965-1985 brings together a wide variety of artists and critics to explore the origins and evolution of this diffuse and vibrant cultural scene
