IN PROGRESS: Gangs of the East Village | Satan's Sinners Nomad.Mr. Quiles is currently at work on a memoir. Clayton Patterson, who photographed the Satan’s Sinners during their day, is convinced he has an important story to tell. “Cochise is a very valuable person,” he said. “Not only because he’s highly intelligent but because he’s really interested in preserving the history of the neighborhood. And he’s willing to talk about the past. Which is highly unusual, especially in the gang world. | see linkNew York Times article

get more info about the bookJEWS, A PEOPLE'S HISTORY OF THE LOWER EAST SIDE | It is the story of a "holy water" spring buried beneath the foundation of the Jewish Daily Forward building on East Broadway, and of a six-month prison sentence from Essex Market Court for throwing snowballs. It is the story of cheap rents, knishes from Russ & Daughters, and children screaming at tour buses to "stop telling lies about them." Above all, it is the story of a people—men and women, artists and workers, academics and criminals—who built a pocket universe within one of the world's greatest cities. | linkmore

The photos are taken in front of the door at 161 Essex Street, which leads into Clayton Hats, Clayton Gallery and the Outlaw Art Museum. This also happens to be the place I live. The front door represented two things for me: It was the Wall of Fame where I played host to many of the local graffiti writers and it was the background for many of the shots ... | linkmore

From names converted from Latin to Arabic script, to words such as love and peace, the popularity of Arabic tattoos shows the extent of the impact that Arab-speaking cultures have made. "Arabic Tattoos" examine the cultural ramifications of non-Arabic speaking individuals wearing religiously and culturally rich scripts. | linkmore

get more info about CAPTUREDCAPTURED | The definitive anthology of New York’s underground cinema, in its creators’ own words. New York’s Lower East Side has been a fountain of creativity and art since the early 1950s, a free-wheeling bazaar of ideas and artists that has challenged and shaped mainstream culture. Captured tells the story of film and video in the Lower East Side and the East Village in the artists’ own words. Captured is part formal history and part inspirational text. | linkmore

get more info about WILDSTYLEWILDSTYLE put together by Clayton Patterson and Jochen Auer. Featuring hundreds of photographs taken by Patterson and a handful of essays (in both English and German) written by tour participants, Wildstyle illustrates exactly how, given the focus and enough manpower, a ready-made subculture can be inflicted upon an unsuspecting continent. In a way, the tour accomplished the same thing the Pistols' Anarchy tour had two decades earlier. | linkmore

INSIDE OUT | The Art World of the Squats documents an exhibition (outdoor and indoor) curated by Alan Moore, Clayton Patterson and Laura Zelasnic about squatters on E. 13th Street in Manhattan October 15 - 22, 1994. Inside, the artists in question scheduled a multimedia exhibit including video and performance. There were events that accompanied the evenings including a special tour of historic sites in the East Village, etc. What has evolved is a study of a squat culture over the years, engendering a visual art that both expresses and transcends its material and social conditions. There are manifestos, press releases, posters all documented and many articles and essays about art of the homeless. Those of you familiar with the Rivington School, the Neoist connection, and squats throughout the world should add this highly charged subject to your collection. — Printed Matter, New York 1994
