NYC's New Museum is mounting the first ever US exhibition retrospective of Brion Gysin, titled Brion Gysin: Dream Machine. It's opens next week and will be up through October 3 this year. The exhibition is directly across from 222 Bowery, where William Burroughs lived in the late '70s, (dubbed "the Bunker" by him), and where Gysin himself visited on a number of occasions.
That building itself has a fantastic history that New York Magazine just happened to chronicle this month with a nice tie-in to the New Museum show >>
