This year we’re hosting an unforgettable art and technology festival in DUMBO, Brooklyn on October 15 &16th.
All year long we’ve been working with Creators of all kinds on the development of new Studio works and debuting them at our international events, starting with Coachella this April and, most recently, in Seoul and Beijing. Some of the artworks have traveled the globe all summer, like the final adaptation of UVA’s audio-visual sculpture, with a soundtrack by composer Scanner, which will be the largest responsive work ever created by the UK based artists.
We’ll also be showing Jonathan Glazer, J. Spaceman, Undisclosable and One of Us’s immersive sound installation, Mick Rock and Barney Clay’s David Bowie transfiguration and Quayola’s latest work, Strata #4. We’ll also be unveiling installations from a few incredible artists discovered via our Gallery and premiering the interactive works from our Art Hack Weekend winners.
The event will be free and open to the public, though RSVP is mandatory and all venues will be subject to capacity regulations. In addition to the two outdoor stages and an indoor DJ hub, there will be a plethora of food and beverages from the Brooklyn Flea and a host of major art installations and films spread out over 11 different venues in DUMBO.
We’ve already told you that we’re debuting Karen O‘s mysterious and seductive psycho-opera Stop the Virgens—an assault on the tragic joys of youth. As our only ticketed performance, tickets are quickly selling out. For ticket information visit St. Ann’s Warehouse. Here’s what else we have in store…
