    The Leaders in Software and Art Salon will consist of four short presentations by artists who incorporate media and technology into their work, including multi-media installations, performances, digital imaging, and new media. There will be a short reception at 6 pm, followed by an hour of presentations at 7 pm. For those who would like to further discuss the presentations there will be an informal gathering at a venue nearby the museum. A donation is suggested.

    The presenters include:

    • Ursula Endlicher's work resides on the intersection of Internet, performance and multi-media installation. Her focus lies in analyzing the social and structural components of the Web while translating its hidden architectures and languages - such as HTML - into choreography for performances, into layouts for visualizations, installations or objects, or into notation for music.

    • Daniel Beunza obtained his Ph.D. from New York University and taught in Barcelona and at Columbia Business School in New York City before joining the London School of Economics as a lecturer in management. His work examines the ways in which social relations and technology shape value within Wall Street. As part of the 3-man collaborative Derivart, he examines concepts like floating, trading, rising, or crashing, and investigates variables like correlation, volatility, or liquidity.

    "You can take anything, but don't take my Coconuts"!

    Join Us for the New York Film Premier Documentary Screening on Wednesday, June 2nd!

    "KID CREOLE AND MY COCONUTS" is a delightful, danceable and very personal documentary memoir chronicling Swiss - born artist/choreographer/designer Adriana Kaegi's adventures as Mama Coconut -- co-founder of the 1980s multicultural tropical funk machine called Kid Creole and the Coconuts and wife to August Darnell the mercurial man behind the glamorous combo.

    From jamming in scrappy downtown New York underground dives to performing for American Presidents and Lady Di, Kid Creole and the Coconuts' dazzling success charted the arc of a decade -- and the rise, fall and rise again of the band the New Musical Express (among others) called The Best Live Band in the world.

    At the center of it all was the stylish, multi-talented Kaegi with an early video camera, "making reality TV before it even existed!" as she laughs. With a rare intimacy, she documents the band's extraordinary experiences, both global and internal. Propelled by the compulsive rhythms of the Kid Creole and the Coconuts extravaganza, this documentary will leave you singing - "You can take anything, but don't take my Coconuts"!

    Ticket $20

  • Fourteen Again

    Arts & Culture, Audio/Visual Design


    A Brand New Exhibition on display!

    Fourteen Again brings together seven artists who, through More Art, partnered with local schools on a series of collaborative art projects. Each artist conducted tailored workshops with students of Chelsea’s Clinton Middle School and Liberty High School, sharing the nature of their artistic practice while creating original works of art together. These collaborations encompassed a wide range of media, involving students on many different levels. The resulting array of works touched upon the themes of adolescence, examining language, place, and the fleeting reality of meaning. Contributing Artists: Wilfredo Ortega, Justin Berry, Slater Bradley, Nancy Drew, Karen Tam, Tony Oursler and Anthony Goicolea. On view till June 19. More info:
