Visual Artist Andrew Fish will be paying homage to the storied NYC nightclub Limelight in the project space at the cell from August 9th – 14th. He will exhibit multiple paintings that embody the vibe, spirit, and visual orchestra of the club’s atmosphere and reimagine the space for a dance party on August 13th, celebrating the music and energy of the era. Fish also plans to install sculptural and decorative elements to make the environment more immersive and reminiscent of the 1990s nightclub. The artist will host open studio hours during his exhibition period and invites visitors to share personal stories and historic memorabilia to enhance the spirit of community and collaboration.
For this exhibition and related events Fish has collaborated with several people who were involved in the original Limelight club scene including former cage dancer, choreographer, and actor Aesha Waks, DJ Corbett, photographer Jacob Fuglsang Mikkelsen, Gatien associate John DeRobbio, and many more to come.
