Hard Art DC 1979 is here with opening = GREAT SUCCESS!
The traffic was non-stop the day of the opening, with galleries packed and a need for entrance control. The Mackaye brothers, Anne Bonafede (pictured above with her photo next to Ian MacKaye), and the Lucian Perkins (pictured above with photo of himself) were in attendance. Several days after the opening, HR of Bad Brains (pictured above) came out to see the show.
“Those pictures were the holy grail! Not that many people brought cameras to shows then so I always wondered who he (Lucian Perkins) was and what happened to the pictures he took. He was at some of the best shows.”
