Come cut a rug and have a drink at Intersection’s Recycled Re-Mix featuring an exciting project, Eighty-sixed Thirty-threes, 2007-2008. This event is presented in conjunction with the current exhibition, Art at the Dump: Twenty Years of the Artist-In-Residence Program at Recology.
Eighty-sixed Thirty-threes is a performance piece by artist Scott Oliver in which records from his exclusive, curated collection of more than 200 vinyl LPs found in the public disposal and recycling area at the San Francisco dump are played by a DJ unfamiliar with the collection.
You can be the DJ! Several audience members at the event will be selected at random, based on signing up for a DJ set when guests enter. DJ Jerry Ross will be providing novice users to a DJ mixing board assistance during their DJ set.
This evening will be a festive one full of energy, music and drinks. Guests will be encouraged to dance as the DJs Re-Mix this eclectic collection that was on its way to the waste stream. Entrance for the event is $10 at the door, or online at recycledremix.eventbrite.com.
Art at the Dump: Twenty Years of the Artist in Residence Program at Recology features the work of over fifty artists including Estelle Akamine, Ellen Babcock, Bill Basquin, Nemo Gould, James Gouldthorpe, David Hevel, Dee Hibbert Jones, Christina Mazza, Sirron Norris, Scott Oliver, Nicole Repack, Isis Rodriguez, James Sansing, Nathaniel Stookey, E. Banker White, and Noah Wilson. Work by artists who have participated in the Student Artist in Residence Program will be presented in the building’s café.
