Bain's and Moffatt's installation offers a voyeuristic raw glimpse into the life of Arturo Vega. Vega is renowned for his friendship with and devotion to the Ramones and his design of every aspect of the Ramones shows and aesthetic. He lived in the East Village for four decades before his death in 2014.Yet his life is poorly documented and often minimized in the history of East Village punk. In the spirit of Vega’s work the installation includes DIY work, queer ponderings, music, as well as text art. It also includes original photos, audio, and video of Vega.

Artists in this collaboration include: Anna Camilleri, Arun Bryson, Daryl Vocat, Erick López de Lara, Heather Bain, Jacob, Jinx, Julian Calleros, Leanne Powers, Lily, Karen Arthurton, Ken Moffatt, May Brand, Mée Rose, Nataleah Hunter Young, Pete Commanda, Poe Liberado, Rosa Mindreau, Sandy McLeod. Sandy Watters. Sonya Reynolds, Stephanie Latty, Sybil Lamb, Xavier 'Jumbo' Garcia
