Pink Flamingo: Clubs in Flux Closing Party
August 14 @ 9:30 pm – August 15 @ 2:00 am UTC-5
Join us for our final closing party, featuring DJs muse(o)fire and Anton Lapov in the gallery + karaoke in the chillout room by Jevijoe Vitug. Also last chance to check out our archives space!
This event is part of the Pink Flamingo: Clubs In Flux Group Exhibition at the cell theatre.
Founded in 2006, the cell has provided a developmental home in the heart of Chelsea for works in progress by artists ranging from early career to established staples of the New York community. Originally established as a theatre space, the cell has gradually restructured into a cultural hub for food artists, cyborg theatre artists, musicians, installation artists, choreographers and more.
A note on accessibility: Unfortunately, the cell is not wheelchair-accessible and visitors must go up a flight of stairs to access the space on the second floor.
Jess Dilday, aka PlayPlay (NYC) is a DJ, producer, writer, teacher and music scholar. They have been a long-term artist-in-residence at Flux Factory and a teaching artist through NYC’s Building Beats and through the Next Level US Hip Hop diplomacy program in Peru. They have previously taught “The Art and Culture of the DJ” through the UNC-Chapel Hill Department of Music. With a particular investment in mentoring those who are not traditionally represented in the music industry, PlayPlay has held DJ workshops at festivals, museums and universities worldwide. As a music scholar, Jess is particulaly interested in local music scenes, queer theory, media studies, nostalgia, dance floor dynamics and creating safer spaces in collective environments. And as a DJ and music producer, their experience as a lifelong music nerd and mainstay at underground clubs for over 20 years is constantly informing their encyclopedic sets, weaving together new underground club tracks with the classics.
Anton Lapov (Ukraine/USA) is an artist, musician, independent curator and museologist. His practice follows a multidisciplinary approach based on his interest in new media, sound-art, creative coding, digital humanities and experimental museology. He is constantly in search of non-conventional forms of exhibitional representation and seeks to avoid the logic of instrumentalisation through the creation of procedural communicative situations. In addition to being involved in the sphere of artistic/curatorial production he also conducts research into the history of sound-art/electronic music and local artistic communities of Eastern Ukraine.
