May 3-6 2012: Common Space organizes and hosts a VIP pop-up club with Artists Space to coincide with the debut of the Frieze NY. The music programming for this series creates a passageway through time and space by re-presenting a sensibility of music and performance tropes that perhaps could be found in either Soho (London or NYC) over the past few decades. NEIN POP featured DJ’s Princess Julia, Matthew Higgs, Cheyney Thompson, Jon Santos, Safety Scissors, No Bra, Venus X, Hayley Pisaturo and the legendary Arthur Baker. Common Space programmed the music and hosted the series at SubMercer, a nightclub in the basement of the Mercer Hotel in NYC’s Soho District.

The MoMA PS1 Performance Dome becomes a multipurpose, pop-up work party this Sunday, February 19. The Dome’s interior will multitask as a design studio, hosting seven design firms working on site throughout the day; as a DJ lounge where friends and professional acquaintances can enjoy themselves and network; and as a performance event open to the public. The labor and lifestyle of creative workers—graphic designers, architects, DJs, sound designers, prop stylists, and artists—will be presented as performance, an HD, 10,000-lumen graphic-design planetarium. Inside the Dome, our lives as producing beings will circle around the hemisphere’s circumference and through the project cycle: conception, production, promotion, presentation, and celebration. How are you? What have you been working on lately?
