Thurston Moore/Jocko Weyland
In the vinyl era of recorded music, album art had a greater presence than it does in the digital age. Weyland pays homage to some of the indie greats with an installation of framed photographed album-cover fragments hung salon style, including a Raymond Pettibon Black Flag cover and scraps from Wire, Dead Kennedys, and Minor Threat covers. Moore's "Street Mouth" collages nod to appropriation-era Richard Prince, only they're cribbed from music memorabilia, with photos and text references to Blondie, Talking Heads, the Ramones, Wayne County, Lou Reed, et al. Together, the collages function like a discursive musicology lecture on seventies and eighties New York rock. Through Oct. 29. (KS Art, 73 Leonard St. 212-219-9918.)
