Alan Vega, "Welcome to Wyoming"
Courtesy Invisible-Exports Alan Vega, Battleship, 2013
The Brooklyn-born Vega, once described as "Elvis from Hell," was half of the pioneering electropunk duo Suicide, whose brand of music was so uncompromising, it made other acts in New York's downtown ’70s scene appear tame. Even then, however, Vega was an artist, and his work—installations of junk tangled in webs of illuminated neon tubing, fluorescent fixtures and lightbulbs—fit his music. This show includes reliefs, as well as series of pencil drawings of portrait heads whose wandering, expressionistic lines recall the intertwined electrical cords so prominent in his sculptures.
