Last year, P.S.1 in New York presented 2822 Records (PS1), 1987-2009, a site-specific floor-based installation of vinyl records by Christian Marclay. Consisting entirely of 12-inch records of every musical genre and style, Marclay’s installation highlights the experiential qualities of music and vinyl recording by inviting visitors to walk on the artwork.
Marclay’s installation highlights some of the most primal notions around music, namely volume, space, and physicality. As an example of viewer and audience participation, it highlights a seminal aspect of the upcoming exhibition 100 Years (version #1, ps1, nov 2009), drafting a short history of actions, events, situations, happenings, and performances beginning with the Futurist Manifesto in 1909 until the present.
Last April 24th, at Saturday Sessions at P.S.1 in New York, there was a special extended evening hosted by PopRally featuring the print-making skills of Forth Estate and an end-of-the-day jam session with one of our favorite psychedelic surf bands, Real Estate.
Inspired by the Christian Marclay installation 2822 Records (PS1), 1987-2009, PopRally used 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.
