Fascinating Art and Ephemera from Downtown NYC in the ’70s and ’80s

Gallery 98's well-curated feed captures the downtown art, music, and film scene as it really was.

We’re big fans of Marc H. Miller’s Gallery 98, which documents vintage art and ephemera from the once thriving downtown New York art scene in the 1970s and ‘80s. From posters by a young Keith Haring to DIY exhibition flyers and more, Gallery 98 captures the scene as it really was, no romanticizing whatsoever (see: the Youth Defense Campaign’s flyers condemning police violence after the Tompkins Square Park riots). Gallery 98’s Instagram page is a great resource to get acquainted with the era and an endless source of fascination. See a preview in our gallery.
