Dreamweapon: The Art and Life of Angus MacLise 1938-1979

Info

120 pages
Full colour
Perfect bound
Edition of 1000

Words

An original member of the Velvet Underground who left the band before their first paid gig, Angus MacLise is a mysterious figure in the countercultural history of 1960s America. It is his work in the Theatre of Eternal Music that I am the most enamoured with and this catalog from the Dreamweapon exhibit that encapsulates his output, contained in a suitcase that was left for safekeeping with LaMonte Young and Marian Zazeela before he split for a life that would eventually end up devoted to Buddhist practice in Nepal.

Before launching the influential 1960s anarchist art publications Black Mask and UAW/MF, Ben Morea was an abstract painter in New York City. His work was all believed to be lost, but miraculously five large canvases were discovered under a bed in Hell’s Kitchen. This recently opened exhibition at Boo-Hooray, curated by Johan Kugelberg, marks the first ever showing of these bold 'new' works.
