Agathe Snow: Stamina
Thursday, August 20–Friday, August 21; Doors open at 6 pm on Thursday
Rotunda Floor
Combining live music, film, and movement, Stamina continues Agathe Snow’s exploration of social interactions, rebellion, and the redemptive power of human ingenuity and community. In 2005, looking to capture the shared moments of the post-September 11 downtown scene, Snow planned and filmed a dance party with her friends and fellow artists in a loft on dusty Ann Street in Lower Manhattan. A decade later, on the occasion of Storylines, the footage has been made into a 24-hour film, revealing never-before-seen material celebrating the resilience of underground culture.
Premiering in the museum’s rotunda and serving as the center of another 24-hour event, Stamina will be accompanied by live music by Donald Cumming,QTYTV Baby (formerly A.R.E. Weapons), Dev Hynes (of Blood Orange) performing with the Onyx Collective, and I.U.D. (Lizzi Bougatsos and Spencer Sweeney), along with music selected by DJs Eric Duncan and Ben Ruhe.
Cash bar and light fare, 6 pm–4 am
Breakfast and juice bar, 4 am–8 am
Tickets are available at the door starting at 6 pm on August 20 and include access to the party that night and museum admission on August 21. $25, $18 students, free for members. More information available
