A futurist night like Click + Drag is interested in all manner of
modernist movements, and tonight Click examines one of the
prettiest and most hard-edged - the 20th century explosion of
British Pop. This revolution (which began in the fifties with
artists like RICHARD HAMILTON) went on to infuse the fashion and
arts to a degree that made Britain the center of youth culture
worldwide by the mid-Sixties. It also produced some of the most
memorable futurist fashion statements ever, from the Space Age
couture of PACO RABANNE (metal dresses and helmets, plastic disk
necklaces and chainmail) to PIERRE CARDIN's unisex jumpsuits and
space travel themes.
The night is named for THIS IS TOMORROW, a 1956 exhibition
organized by Hamilton and the Independent Group, which helped put
this work on the map. NY futurist pin-up THEO performs music of
the future with cyberdelic dancers VIVA AND JAIKO and the
extremely visual themes are explored in video imagery by ROB
ROTH. Sixties-era chainmail is reimagined in fashion
installations by chainmail design house BLAZE NEW YORK. DJs SAMMY
JO and LOAD REZENHAND spin space-age throbbing breakbeat,
synthpop and electropunk.
As Click + Drag presents this ninth monthly "experiment", we'd
like to thank our audience for responding so well to our new
venue and our vision of larger-scale monthly editions. We promise
you lots more of the truly new on second Thursdays to come.
