John Coxon and J. Spaceman
On Thursday 24 October, Lisson Gallery New York hosted a night of performance, discussion and music inspired by the pioneering work of Art & Language and their 40-year collaboration with The Red Krayola, a proto-punk band founded in Houston by Mayo Thompson.
The evening also featured a discussion with Art & Language, hosted by art historian Matthew Jesse Jackson, as well as a newly commissioned homage to some of The Red Krayola’s earliest live shows, composed by musicians J. Spaceman (of Spacemen 3 and Spiritualized) and John Coxon (from Spring Heel Jack and the Treader label).
The one-of-a-kind evening was recorded, stay tuned to lissongallery.com for footage.
