PopRally invites you to an exclusive performance by HOLYCHILD (Liz Nistico and Louie Diller), a Los Angeles–based duo that, as Billboard put it, treats each song as a “pop polemic, poking at the absurdity of female beauty standards while a dance-friendly guitar riff ricochets in the background.” The event includes a special screening of the band's conceptual video trilogy, which accompanies their recently released debut EP MINDSPEAK and an opportunity to view the MoMA exhibition Robert Heinecken: Object Matter. Guests can draw connections between HOLYCHILD’s videos, “which trace the stages of objectification experienced by a central female character, from empowerment to insecurity and emotional desolation,” and Heinecken’s work, which examines American attitudes toward gender, sex, and violence in a humorous and provocative way.
Admission includes a cocktail reception and exclusive access to Robert Heinecken: Object Matter after Museum hours, and A DJ Set by DJ Le Chev.
Special Thanks to Sud de France Wines: Gerard Bertrand, Arrogant Frog, Jaja de Jau and Gilles Louvet. Beer for this event has been provided by Brooklyn Brewery.
You must be 21 or older to attend this event.
