Besides being an excellent artist, MacDonald also played in bands, most notably Twisted Teenage Plot. The Alper Initiative exhibition will showcase visual artists who played in bands in Washington in the late 70s and early 80s, including Robin Rose, Joe White, Dick Bangham, Clark Fox (aka Michael Clark), Michael Barron, Judith Watkins Tartt, JW Mahoney, Steve Ludlum, Root Boy Slim, Michael McCall, and Michael Reidy.
In addition to the artist's visual work, the exhibition will include sound recordings, posters, videos, and memorabilia from the bands these artists were a part of: Urban Verbs, Root Boy Slim, Tiny Desk Unit, The Examiners, Twisted Teenage Plot, (the) Razz, and The Slickee Boys.
An exhibition catalog for Twisted Teenage Plot will be available through the museum book store.
