Sunglasses with invitation tag for the 1985 event at the AREA Nightclub in NYC for Randy Schindler and Hamptons Newspaper Magazine.

NY: AREA, 1985.

Item #SKB-17654

The glasses have an invitation tag attached by string and both came in a mailing envelope that is still present. A creative invitation from this popular club and art installation space that created various themed events that "brought together the disparate worlds of artists, fashion designers, socialites, film stars, writers, musicians, and celebrities." Upon its opening in 1983 AREA immediately became the nexus of the Downtown art and club scene of the '80s. Basquiat was a friend of the Goodes who owned the club and was a regular there sometimes taking on the role of DJ. Fine (the glasses measure 2" x 4" and the tag 2" x 3") envelope slightly worn.

Price: $350.00
