PopRally, in collaboration with DIS Magazine and Ryan Trecartin, invites you to a closing celebration for the MoMA PS1 exhibition Ryan Trecartin: Any Ever, featuring live performances by AraabMUZIK, 15-year-old Glasspopcorn (prod. Ryder Ripps), #HDBOYZ, and other special guests.
This spectacular evening will collapse the virtual and the real into an immersive, real-time media party performance with bodybuilders, dancers, Spicee Cajun, Raul de Nieves as Lindsay Lohan, DJs Telfar, Physical Therapy and Fatima Al Qadiri, with Veronica Gelbaum giving experiential guided tours of the exhibit and DISembodied realtime MC Akeem_Ouch. Pop boyband #HDBOYZ will close the night, with visualFX presented by Thunder Horse Video. DIS_RT will also premiere the DIS-conceived Media Companion—a new form of living media backdrop, a personal Zentai “step-and-repeat” that provides the perfect brand-integrated photo opportunity.
DIS is a multimedia art magazine that seeks to expand creative economies and dissolve conventions, distort realities and disturb ideologies, and disrupt the normative dissemination of information and culture.
An innovator of ecstatic new frontiers in art and cinema, Ryan Trecartin is influential within the art world and among a broader, intergenerational set of thinkers and cultural consumers. His latest series, Any Ever, mines emergent evolutions of identity, narrative, language, and visual culture.
Admission includes an exclusive last-chance viewing of Ryan Trecartin: Any Ever before it closes September 3, 2011; a cocktail reception; and an evening of performances.
PopRally is supported in part by The Friends of Education of The Museum of Modern Art.
