Find visiting and accessibility information for Nowadays.
Our community has been around for five decades, but little of our history has been preserved. Curator, researcher and NYC-based DJ PlayPlay will lead an intergenerational, multimedia panel discussion of this collective memory, before opening the floor to a conversation on nostalgia, shared knowledge, and the importance of documenting the legacy of our short-lived spaces. Guests are encouraged to bring memories and ephemera from their personal archives (flyers, records, objects, etc) to share.
This event also serves as a preview of “Pink Flamingo: Clubs In Flux,” a series of three temporary nightclub installations with archival components, presented July 25-August 14 by PlayPlay (Jess Dilday) and Anton Lapov at Nancy Manocherian’s the cell theatre by Flux Factory.
