Over the last few weeks, we have been honored to exhibit A District Defined: Streets, Sex, and Survival at 401 W. 14th Street. 401 has been a multi-dimensional space offering Terremoto Coffee during the day, wine and beer at night, DJ sets, live performance, and, at its forefront, the works of 8 amazing photographers.
Works by Lynsey Addario, Lola Flash, Jill Freedman, Efrain Gonzalez, t.l. Litt, Catherine McGann, Katsu Naito, and Joseph Rodriguez, who all captured Queer nightlife in the Meatpacking District in the 80s and 90s, brought this first-of-its-kind exhibit to life.
“To me, I just want to pause for a second and think about all those folks who aren’t here still. You know, it’s like, maybe they're here having drinks with us and we don’t really know, “ - Lola Flash at 401
The space at 401 is more than a lens into history. It has embodied the spirit and legacy of a time period that defined the Meatpacking District as a cultural, artistic, and love-filled landmark.
“For me it’s about giving perspective and to show that we’re all the same, “ - Lynsey Addario at 401
Don’t miss your chance to experience the beauty of 401, which will close on 7/9.
Grab a coffee or a cocktail, pick up limited edition merch, and enjoy a peak into the time period that defined our district.
