Michael McClard’s film, MOTIVE, is included in the Jimmy DeSana: Submission exhibition at Brooklyn Museum in New York, from November 11, 2022 to April 16, 2023.

As part of punk aesthetics and its symbolic forms of resistance, Jimmy DeSana and his peers sought to forge art communities outside of official institutions. During the late 1970s and early 1980s, DeSana was heavily involved in New York’s punk and No Wave scenes and photographed prominent creatives for album covers and alternative publications. The
Jimmy DeSana: Submission exhibition at Brooklyn Museum will be the first to feature DeSana’s portraits of art and music luminaries such as Kathy Acker, Laurie Anderson, Kenneth Anger, Patti Astor, David Byrne, John Giorno, Debbie Harry, and Richard Hell. The Jimmy DeSana: Submission exhibition will also be showcasing MOTIVE, a film starring Jimmy DeSana, and made by Michael McClard.
