Tell your squad you're stepping up your weekend game. Bars are sooo basic. How about partying it up at one of NYC’s hippest art museums?!
If you've never been to MoMA PS1 (it's the one in LIC not Midtown), this is a great opportunity to check it out.
On Saturday, November 19th, MoMA PS1 will be hosting a late night celebration to debut their new exhibition, Mark Leckey: Containers and Their Drivers.
You can check out the full details on their website; it's supposed to be one of NYC's most anticipated art events– don't miss out! Visitors will also be granted special access to three new exhibitions.
This will be the largest exhibition of British artist Mark Leckey's work to date. He came to prominence in the late '90s. His art delves into the effects of technology on pop culture and explores the transition from analog to digital culture.
Highlights of the exhibition will include Leckey's film Fiorucci Made me Hardcore which traces dance subcultures in British nightclubs from the 70s to the '90s, a selection of his Sound System sculptures, and footage from his pedagogical lecture performances.
If you can't make it to this opening celebration, you can still catch the exhibition through March 5th, 2017.
There will also be Fiorruci Made Me Hardcore-inspired dancing in the VW Dome and snacks and drinks served by M. Wells.
The party starts at 8 p.m. and ends at midnight. Unless you're a MoMA PS1 member, tickets are $15 and you can grab yours here.
