This month’s “Get Weird” experimental jam session at the New Museum on Thursday will include a George Condo costume contest, accompanied by the Australian psychedelic band Naked On The Vague. Dress up as your favorite Condo painting and win a special prize package including a copy of the exhibition catalogue autographed by George Condo, a New Museum Membership and a Naked On The Vague T-shirt. Costumes will be judged by Massimiliano Gioni, Director of Exhibitions for the New Museum.
NuMu writes: On the eve of a national tour with Zola Jesus, Members of Naked On The Vague will perform a one-off concert inspired by the madness and frightening psychological states portrayed in Condo’s paintings. This exclusive set written especially for this performance will recall the band’s most textured ambient material, built from alien noises, heavy synthesizer tones, and alienating landscapes. All costumed attendees will receive a set of limited-edition George Condo buttons.
Late comers will not be allowed in. $12 // 7pm sharp // 235 Bowery.
