Floor 3, Susan and John Hess Family Gallery and Theater
In collaboration with Discwoman, the Whitney Museum celebrates Pride and the LGBTQ community with a performance by artist NIC Kay. They will present about love, a performance that considers the Ru Paul quote, “If you don't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?” about love is part of GET WELL SOON, a series of performances by Kay that asks how wellness can be defined outside of the neoliberal cultural economy.
Kay’s performance will be complemented by a DJ set by Ziúr inspired by the Meatpacking District’s rich queer history and the current exhibition An Incomplete History of Protest: Selections from the Whitney’s Collection, 1940–2017.
Discwoman, founded by Frankie Decaiza Hutchinson, Emma Burgess-Olson, and Christine McCharen-Tran, is a New York-based platform, collective, and booking agency that showcases and represents talent in electronic music.
NIC Kay is a trans disciplinary artist working with and through performance. Their work has been presented in Europe and the United States.
Ziúr is a Berlin-based DJ/producer, dedicated to combining different sonic textures and brainy beats into a functional dancefloor framework–clearly intended for loud sound systems (and preferably accompanied by a fog machine) but without any strict loyalty toward a certain BPM or subgenre.
