ISSUE Project Room at Santos’

 

 

After winning a bid for a 20 year, rent-free lease in downtown Brooklyn, ISSUE Project Room celebrated its victory last night with a benefit at Santos’ Party House in Chinatown. A crowd of electronic music connoisseurs took in the sounds of David Linton, Alex Waterman, Charles Cohen, Fair Use Trio, Moby plus many others.  The evening was hosted by  all-round genius artist and avant-garde pioneer, Tony Conrad.

Since 2003 Project Room has provided a leading-edge performance art space dedicated to experimental music, filmmaking, reading, and sound installation.  Currently located at The Can Factory in Gowanus, it will soon take over a stunning 4800 square foot landmark theatre at 110 Livingston Street.

ISSUE will need about six-hundred thousand dollars in order for the new locale to reach full potential. Donations will go towards architectural renovation and construction.  As well as to sound-proofing, system installation, lighting, heating, ventilation, etc.  But most of all, donations will help continue the Project Room’s dedication to innovation.  Click here for more and celebrate the arts in Brooklyn.
