Tonight is the PopRally event where MoMA turns into a big party with open bar and live music. I went to one of these last year, it was lots of fun and there were so many terrific people to look at. The party tonight celebrates the installation that German/Transylvanian twin brothers Gert and Uwe Tobias just put up last night, Projects 86. The theme of the party is German Beer Hall, and it’s open bar all night, with special German beer and infinite soft pretzels. The music comes from the guitar and cello of Lewis & Clarke, as well as DJ Doug Mosurok. I’m told it will be a “chill” and fairly intimate event, not rowdy or screamy, and that at the end you get to take home a special gift that Gert and Uwe made for all the guests. I wonder what it will be! Fingers crossed for this.
The installation looks a little creepy, or kind of grimly lighthearted, like a laughing goblin clown trapped in a computer. You know, from the two small pictures I clicked on on the internet. Don’t worry, I am an art professional.
Tickets were $8 if you bought them already (a very few still available online), and it’s $10 if you don’t have a computer. It starts at 8:30 and goes to 11:30pm. If you go, please let me know what the special present surprise was.
