FRIDAY AT 8PM: Rooftop Films presents Shorts about Love with music by Deer Tick
Short films about love and loneliness will tug at your jaded heartstrings; Deer Tick will make you gaga for the new wave of Americana; an open Radeberger beer bar at the after party will wash all your sorrows away.
Gussie up to get down. It’s an easy-going, late afternoon, barbecue come dance party. Sunday Best! is once again taking over The Yard, a leafy waterside lot on the Gowanus Canal for a nice, mid-afternoon barbecue. It’s no ordinary weenie roast, though. The bar-b’s organic (provided by Kelly Geary of Sweet Deliverance) and resident DJs Justin Carter, Eamon Harkin and Doug Singer are playing alongside Afrika Bambaataa. The electro creator and hip-hop godfather is bringing it block party style. Get our your cardboard boxes and break one off.
SUNDAY AT 3PM: PS1 Summer Opening Celebration on June 22 will feature performances by Hex Message and Ecstatic Sunshine. More information here
P.F.1 (Public Farm One – pictured above) is an urban farm concept that evokes the look of a flying carpet landing in the P.S.1 courtyard. Constructed from large cardboard tubes, its top surface will be a working farm, blooming with a variety of vegetables and plants. The structure will create a textured, colorful, and constantly changing surface in contrast with P.S.1′s angular concrete and gravel courtyard. P.F.1 will work as an interactive bridge between outside and inside, creating multiple zones of activity including swings, fans, sound effects, innovative seating areas, and a refreshing pool at its center. The installation will be a living structure made from inexpensive and sustainable materials recyclable after its use at P.S.1
