MoMA PS1 Saturday Sessions, Long Island City, NY
April 24, 2010
PopRally hosted an afternoon of print-making with Forth Estate, an NYC-based print publishing company, as part of P.S.1's Saturday Sessions. Inspired by Christian Marclay's P.S.1 installation 2822 Records (PS1), 1987-2009, PopRally made use of the surplus LPs from the exhibition to create a participatory print-making event. Forth Estate and artists Glen Baldrige, Donna Chung, and Tim Lokiec will live screen-print on blank LP sleeves. Guests took home the artwork along with a random record. The event featured a live performance by Real Estate.
Saturday Sessions was a weekly performance series designed to introduce emerging performance artists to New York audiences. P.S.1 has had a long tradition of showcasing performance-based art, from the Butoh dance of Min Tanaka to the films of Jack Smith.
Forth Estate was founded in 2005 by Luther Davis and Glen Baldridge in the interest of producing editioned works by emerging artists using both traditional and technologically innovative approaches to printmaking.
