Wednesday, August 31, 2011
6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
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.
Admission includes: an exclusive last-chance viewing of Ryan Trecartin: Any Ever; Open Bar; and an evening of performances.
