Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art


Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983
Through April 1, 2018
The Museum of Modern Art
The East Village of the 1970s and 1980s continues to thrive in the global public’s imagination. Located in the basement of a Polish Church at 57 St. Marks Place, Club 57 (1978–83) began as a no-budget venue for music and film exhibitions, and quickly took pride of place in a constellation of countercultural venues in downtown New York fueled by low rents, the Reagan presidency, and the desire to experiment with new modes of art, performance, fashion, music, and exhibition. A center of creative activity in the East Village, Club 57 is said to have influenced virtually every club that came in its wake. Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art weiterlesen

CFP Future Present Current Practices in Pop Music Studies

Future Present Current Practices in Pop Music Studies

19-20 June 2018; Department of Musicology, Uppsala University, Sweden
From its emergence, pop music, broadly defined, has been conceptualized as a culturally embedded practice. Adapting theoretical and methodological tools from various fields, its study has transgressed disciplinary boundaries and emphasized the complex relations of the cultural, socio-economic, and political contexts of pop music. This conference seeks to provide a space for deep engagements in pop music and its various contexts. It aims to explore current theoretical and methodological developments in pop music studies across thematic and disciplinary borders, and to foster discourse surrounding future directions in pop music and its study.

The Mexican Musical Universe Between Centenaries (1517-1917)

International Conference “From New Spain to Mexico: The Mexican Musical Universe Between Centenaries (1517-1917)”
4-5 December 2017

Campus Antonio Machado, Universidad Internacional de Andalucía, Baeza, Jaen, Spain

Program
In 1917, the Political Constitution of the United Mexican States was promulgated. That year also witnessed the publication of the first history of music in Mexico: El arte musical en México by Alba Herrera y Ogazón. The year 1917 is, therefore, not only the starting point of a new Mexican constitutionalism but also that of the nascent historiography of Mexican music. In addition, it is a point of arrival that allows us to pose, in contrast to traditional historical narratives, a retrospective view of Mexican music from that time back to 1517, when the expedition of the Andalusian conquistador Francisco Hernández de Córdoba reached the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula.
