The lovechild of young baby boomers who felt left out of sixties counterculture and New York City nightlife's increasing polarity, disco was born on February 14, 1970. Upon its half-centennial, 𝐃𝐢𝐬𝐜𝐨 𝐚𝐭 𝟓𝟎 presented by Morrison Hotel Gallery retraces the cosmopolitan renaissance from the velvet-roped phenomena of genre goliaths like Studio 54 and Paradise Garage back to the modest obscurity of David Mancuso's invite-only Loft parties in SoHo. On public view starting Friday, February 14, 2020, this month-long exhibition featuring photographers as Bill Bernstein, Ron Galella, Lynn Goldsmith, Rose Hartman, Catherine McGann, Allan Tannenbaum and Chris von Wangenheim is a love letter to legendary nights and an era when exclusivity was all about inclusivity.
