Thirty-four years later, the world's first VJs recreate their historic Danceteria Video Lounge in NYU’s Bobst Library and they invite you to join.

Elmer Holmes Bobst Library, 3rd Floor

New York University’s Fales Library and Special Collections presents the GoNightclubbing Video Lounge, a multi-media installation curated by Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong paying tribute to the infamous Danceteria Video Lounge, which they created in 1980. The re-imagined Video Lounge installation celebrates Ivers and Armstrong’s work at the iconic Danceteria nightclub, where they pioneered the video DJ concept during the height of the punk rock era. The re-imagined GoNightclubbing Video Lounge will be a feature of “Punk Turns Forty,” a conference being held at NYU and Cooper Union in downtown Manhattan in April 2014.

This event is free and open to the public, no RSVP required.
