Return To The Bowery, 1981-85

Bettie and I returned to the Bowery as the American correspondents of the Dutch magazine Nieuwe Revu. Increasingly, we saw ourselves as journalists and our next project "Unforgettable Moments" was conceived as much for publication as for exhibition. Much had changed in the year we had been away: the East Village was now filled with art galleries, and many of the people whom we had worked and associated with in the Punk Art show were now leaders in the evolving scene. I collaborated with Alan Moore on a book about ABC No Rio, an innovative alternative art space he helped start in the Lower East Side. I also began working on ART/new york, a video magazine about art started by Paul Tschinkel. The first program we did together was on "New York/New Wave," an exhibition curated by Diego Cortez that expanded on the idea of Punk Art. In addition, I had a monthly column, "Miller's Memorabilia" in the East Village Eye, the new voice of the scene.
