Sonic Youth guitarist Thurston Moore told New York Magazine last week that the band plans to launch a traveling art show that will stop in New York, possibly at the Whitney.
"We’re putting together this museum show that’s utilizing all the artists that we’ve worked with on different covers and concepts, and that’s going to happen for two or three years," said Mr. Moore, following a gig at the "Kool Thing" at Marc Jacobs’s fashion show. "It’s going to happen in young museums, there’s one outside of Paris, there’s one in Malmö, Sweden," he added.
A location for the show in New York has yet to be confirmed, Moore says, but at least one museum is already attracted to the project — or else Moore’s trying to attract its attention. "I think the Whitney is somewhat interested," he said, "but it’s all about scheduling."
