For some of us that are spending the weekend here in the city and other than bike riding, gardening (my yard is a disaster!), working on your tan or running around ( I already went to 4 art show openings), here is something fun to do at the Modern Museum of Art this Saturday night. Only $12.00 and free beer + a limited edition mask by Assume Vivid Astro Focus. All in a budget and @ the MoMA!

I am tempted!~You might see me there!

SATURDAY, MAY 23, 2009
8:30–11:00 P.M.

Join PopRally for the North American premiere of a special performance by Black Meteoric Star (Gavin Russom) and assume vivid astro focus. These artists will transform MoMA's cavernous Marron Atrium into a new audio-visual landscape, bringing you along on an ecstatic journey through the night.

Gavin Russom created Black Meteoric Star in 2006, channeling his love of dance music and culture into minimal, psychedelic arrangements influenced by early techno and house music. International multimedia collective assume vivid astro focus (avaf) will produce a vibrant visual setting for this music, engaging participants in a celebration of dance, sound, and light.

The Judith Rothschild Foundation Contemporary Drawings Collection, acquired by MoMA in 2005, is an extraordinary collection of over 2,500 contemporary works on paper, including pieces by Russom and avaf. The exhibition Compass in Hand, which will be open for viewing during this event, presents more than three hundred works from the gift.

Guests will receive a limited-edition mask designed by assume vivid astro focus to wear at the event. Please be advised: the performance will feature strobe lights, a smoke machine, and lasers.

Swingtops provided by Grolsch, plus a cash bar.

Tickets ($12 in advance, $15 at door) are available via Ticketweb, or at MoMA's lobby information and film desks.

You must be twenty-one or older to attend this event.
