Pride at the Whitney

FRI, June 15, 2018
7–9 pm

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.

Registration has reached capacity, and entry is first-come, first-served.  A limited number of standby tickets may be available on a first-come, first-served basis the day of. For ticketing issues, please email ticketing@whitney.org.
