VICE Media drops the Creators Project Brooklyn this weekend, and frankly, they’re killing it with this lineup. With headlining appearances from the likes of Justice, Florence + The Machine and Four Tet, the debut of Karen O‘s “psycho-opera,” multimedia works by UVA and David Bowie, and plenty more incredible performances and installations across the board, well…we’re seriously bitter that we can’t make it. Listen up, New York: you have no damn excuse for missing this, because it is absolutely free with RSVP on the Creators Project website.
From the press release:
NEW YORK, NY (October 7th, 2011) –The Creators Project will take to the streets of DUMBO, Brooklyn, erecting 30-foot sculptures, showcasing works from over thirty leading international artists, and featuring dozens of live music performances. The event will also include the world premiere of Karen O’s psycho-opera, Stop The Virgens, along with film screenings and panels. Original artworks include Life on Mars Revisited, an immersive short film of David Bowie’s classic space-rock anthem from legendary music photographer Mick Rock and filmmaker Barney Clay; ‘A Physical Manifestation of Ladies and Gentlemen, We Are Floating in Space,’ a cathedral-like physical manifestation of the song created by Spiritualized’s J. Spaceman and acclaimed film director Jonathan Glazer; and Origin, a striking thirty by thirty foot audiovisual installation by UVA and composer Scanner, which will be the largest responsive work ever created by the UK based artists.
The festival runs Saturday, 10/15 from 12-10pm and Sunday, 10/16 from 12-8pm.
