April 24: PopRally hosts Saturday Sessions featuring Forth Estate and Real Estate
Date: Saturday, April 24, 2010
Time: 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM
PopRally will host 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 will use the surplus LPs from the exhibition to create a participatory print-making event. Participants will work with Forth Estate and artists Glen Baldrige, Donna Chung, and Tim Lokiec to screen-print on blank LP sleeves and will be given one of the surplus records to take away with their artwork.The event will also feature a live performance by the psychedelic surf pop band Real Estate.
Saturday Sessions is a new 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.
Launched in April 2006, this program of events at The Museum of Modern Art and P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center features collaborations with artists and musicians, performances, film screenings, receptions, and special viewings of exhibitions at moderate prices. Past events have included performances by Sigur Ros, Cat Power, Les Savy Fav, Patti Smith, Chicks on Speed, DFA records, and PaperRad and friends. Additional information on PopRally is available at
PopRally is funded by the generous support of Jerry I. Speyer and Katherine Farley.
Saturday Sessions are supported by Sydie Lansing.
