The Barbican, London
until 22 May
The curators of this exhibition have tried to reconstruct the multimedia art scene of downtown Manhattan in the 1970s, when it became known as SoHo (south of Houston). Before it became trendy it was one of the cheapest run-down parts of town.
It was a place of old empty workshops and factories, mostly falling down, in an area which was not classified as residential. It was an area for work, but the work had long moved out.
