Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

This pretty, quirky "performance artist" has also branched out into more mainstream films and television. Arriving in New York in 1978, Magnuson co-founded Club 57, the "neo-Dada cabaret", where she and her collaborators (such as Eric Bogosian and Joey Arias) made a name for themselves with their sly brand of comic social commentary--her tribute to Muzak, for instance, which was held in an elevator. Magnuson's one-woman shows played worldwide in the late 1970s and early 80s New York, and her video, "Made for TV", was shown on PBS's "Alive from Off-Center" in 1984.
