Organized by Ward 5B and Caffé Cino alumnus Magie Dominic, “Magic Time!—Art & Ephemera of the Caffé Cino” coincides with the Caffe Cino’s designation as an historic site by the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission in June 2019; and as the home of experimental theater in the 1960s. ClampArt’s exhibition will feature artwork of collagist and memoirist Magie Dominic, in addition to works by Kenny Burgess—the artist and designer of the original Caffé Cino posters. Both were a part of the Caffé Cino and are represented in The Fales Library & Special Collections at New York University and in The New York Library for the Performing Arts Archives at Lincoln Center. Included in the exhibit is “The Gown” by Magie Dominic. “The Gown” is constructed from hundreds of fabric pieces sent from people world wide as a symbol of stillness. Ireland is represented in the Gown. The exhibition will also feature an extensive collection of ephemera from the Caffé Cino itself.
