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 (2015) will be accompanied by live music by Donald Cumming, QTY, TV Baby (formerly A.R.E. Weapons), Onyx Collective, I.U.D. (Lizzi Bougatsos and Spencer Sweeney), and Wade and Friends, along with music selected by DJs Eric Duncan and Ben Ruhe. Lineup is subject to change.
Cash bar open until 4 am on August 21. Guests wishing to purchase alcoholic beverages will be asked for photo ID.
