The Last Party celebrates the creative ferment that exploded in New York’s club culture in the mid 70s, following Watergate and the Vietnam War. It became a phenomenon whose influence spanned three decades and crossed continents until it waned in the early 90s.

The Last Party is a survey exhibition of fine art, graffiti and street art, photography, video, fashion, and memorabilia that is profiled in Anthony Haden-Guest’s 1997 book, The Last Party: Studio 54, Disco and The Culture of the Night. This exhibition will run throughout the summer at WhiteBox. Offsite musical performances and capsule exhibitions will be hosted at ACME and VS Gallery (dates to be announced).

Whitebox Art Center is pleased to present at SELECT Fair, Arial Allusions by Andriy Bazyuta featured on the rooftop with “You Are Here” Festival (aka The Maze ) and Ex of IN exhibition by Steven Holl in booth 206.

Arial Allusions | Andriy Bazyuta

Arial Allusions is an interactive, multilayered 3D dual projection work engaging visitors-as-participants through the use of ‘Kinect’ 3D sensors akin to a dendrological ideation. Beaming the moving audience from high up figure by figure will propel, in real time, the illusion of an amended architectural space where human sounds get converted into analogous geometrical images using as foil the ‘maze’ construct provided by Now You See Collective. Likewise, classic New York City rooftop elements such as the water tower, gazebos, retaining low walls, and the tar floor will become screening fields.

Figures entering the rooftop, upon coming in contact with sensors, will become active participants, their body shapes surrounded by an unlimited number of projected geometrical moving visual patterns caused by their transposed innate sounds. These sounds will be gleaned, processed, and visually mapped into constant oscillating images thrown upon various architectures surrounding the audience. The larger the crowd and the louder the sound propelled, the shakier the projected vibrating images will become, reaching a super saturated point turning into a sea of electrifying, rambling and shattering images.

Projections will be sourced from two asymmetrical perspective points. The one situated high up on the water tower will track and trap shifting bodies from above enclosing their figures into a single, vertiginously colored micro-environment which upon being approached by another body, the second low lying projector will, in synchronicity, linearly surround both images from its binary position in a dramatic overlap.

When geometry is no longer Euclidian we are thrown into a limitless world of the imagination. Conjugating cubic forms with spheres increases the infinite possibility to see some such configurations as a plastic reality. But a rational process does not guaranty the right ratio. Provided we are able to think, at the same time, that what we are seeing are not geometry but something else. These are some of the considerations we are obliged to entertain as we are engaged in the nature of the challenge posed to us in these experiments. These grouping and re-grouping of similar patterns is not a simple operation as it may appear. We are obliged to take the greatest care in employing harmonic ratios not only in a single form, but also in the relation of one form to each other, and it is this demand for the right ratio which could be in the centre of our conception of architecture, ultimately: “Una cosa mentale”.
