by Andrew Sacher

Pan Act

In June 2013, ISSUE Project Room and the Goethe-Institut New York present PAN_ACT, a multi-faceted series of performances, talks, and installations exploring parallel strategies in conceptual art, underground dance, and experimental music. Curated by ISSUE Project Room’s Lawrence Kumpf and Berlin-based designer and founder of the PAN label Bill Kouligas, PAN_ACT presents a diverse array of artists working in Berlin, London, Boston, and New York, drawn largely from the PAN roster. Sixteen events span multiple venues including ISSUE Project Room and the Goethe-Institut Wyoming Building, as well as collaborative presentations with MoMA PS1, The Bunker, Mutual Dreaming, Make Music New York, NPR Music, and Non-Event (Boston).

The PAN_ACT festival described above kicked off in NYC last Friday (6/14), and it’s continuing through Saturday, June 29. It’s already included a number of forward-thinking events throughout the week, and there’s even more coming up, including…

Tonight (6/21) at Issue Project Room (22 Boerum Place in Brooklyn), LA experimentalist Joseph Hammer, Athens producer Jar Moff (who worked on RVNG’s Harald Grosskopf – Re-Syntheist project), and German minimalist producer Thomas Brinkmann are teaming up to perform solo sets. Tickets are available.

Tonight (6/21) at K&K Super Buffet (341 St Nicholas Ave in Queens), The Bunker is throwing a late (11 PM – 6 AM) party with Downwards label head Regis, UK-based ambient artist Lee Gamble, art pop beatmaker Laurel Halo (live), veteran electronic musician Keith Fullerton Whitman (live), and PAN label head Bill Kouligas (live). Tickets for tonight’s show are available. Flyer below.

Saturday (6/22) at Issue Project Room, Resident Advisor is presenting a show with IPR’s 2013 artist-in-residence Ben Vida, London’s Helm, and composer Jefre Cantu-Ledesma performing with collaborator/filmmaker Paul Clipson. Tickets for that one are on sale.

Saturday (6/22) at 285 Kent, Resident Advisor and NYC party Mutual Dreaming are teaming up for a late show (10 PM – 4 AM) with live sets by Detroit techno vet/Juan Atkins associate Terrence Dixon and abstract hip hop collaboration Sensational & Koyxen, plus DJ sets by Berlin’s Call Super and DJ Richard. Tickets for that one are available. Show flyer below.

PAN_ACT also includes the first installment of this year’s Warm Up at MoMA PS1, which happens on June 29 with Juan Atkins, Lee Gamble, Heatsick, Koyxen, and Bill Kouligas. Tickets for that one are still available.
