FILM: KUSAMA — INFINITY

February 21, 2019 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

“It may seem strange for a movie to argue that an artist who at various times has been called the world’s most popular and has set a record for the highest amount paid for a work by a living female artist is somehow undervalued. But Kusama — Infinity, a documentary from Heather Lenz, makes a convincing case that the art world and the general public are still catching up with the influence of Yayoi Kusama, the painter, sculptor and performance artist perhaps most widely known for her mirrored ‘Infinity’ rooms.” – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times.

MUSIC: BODY/HEAD

March 8, 2019 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

A not to be missed concert presented in partnership with Party Store Productions. “Sonically, Body/Head have never been easy to define. While Nace’s underground rap sheet is a long, winding one, Gordon is most directly associated with Sonic Youth’s protracted climb from Lower East Side chaos to elite American indie-rock comprehensibility. Together, the pair hew impulsively to an art rock ideal that cherishes abstraction, a grab-bag of imprints, a diversity of formats.” – Raymond Cummings, Spin.
