MoMA AND P.S.1's POPRALLY PRESENTS AN EVENING WITH ARTIST COLLECTIVE PAPER RAD FEATURING CORY ARCANGEL

PopRally
The Museum of Modern Art
11 West 53 Street
Tuesday, July 24, 2007
8:00 - 11:00 p.m.

In conjunction with MoMA's media exhibition Automatic Update, PopRally, presents an evening of live performances, art, and music with the artist collective Paper Rad, featuring Cory Arcangel and special guests. PopRally is a series of events for young New Yorkers.

Influenced by 1980s mass media and pop iconography--from Garfield to Gumby to Trolls--Paper Rad (Jessica Ciocci, Jacob Ciocci, and Ben Jones) playfully combines found footage from TV and the Internet with original animations to create utopian, rainbow-filled environments of throwaway technology and images that have permeated the last two decades.

This event will feature music and multi-media performances by Ben Jones, Cory Arcangel, Slow Jams Band, and DJ Jazzy Jexxx. The artists create a psychedelic landscape where viewers can tune in, tune out, revel, and reflect on the ways in which the new-media era of the recent past has changed the way we comprehend art, music, and culture.

WHEN: Tuesday, July 24, 2007, 8:00 - 11:00 p.m.

TICKETS: $10 and are available at MoMA's lobby information desk and Film desk, or online through Ticketweb.com.
