Plexus (no. 8) will be held at CHASHAMA 461 Gallery on Thursday, March 14th @7PM.
This event features speakers from three distinct disciplines, whose practices are linked by an emphasis on image-making. We will explore the roles played by images in the context of these speakers’ divergent subject matter: images are documents, pieces of evidence, fine art.
In partnership with PLEXUS and Immigration Equality, Crossing Over Documentary is having a Valentine’s dance party! Please join us at RABBITHOLE Studios in Dumbo, Brooklyn on Friday, February 15th at 8PM to dance, eat, drink and celebrate!
There will be art work on display from the making of the film and a love-themed Zine featuring the works of: Matt Porter, Katrina Sorrentino, Sasha Arutyunova, Caroline Washburn, Sophia La Fraga, Carrie Crowell, and Brittany Buongiorno.
Please RSVP at crossingoverdocumentary@gm
We hope to see you there!
We are excited to report that Plexus alums Alex Howe, Travis Mushett, and Kevin Tang are launching Blunderbuss Magazine, a webmag full of “essays, stories, poems, photographs, comics, and other bits of aesthetic shrapnel.”
Blunderbuss will go live this March, and we encourage you to keep up with their progress by giving them a Like on Facebook! http://www.facebook.com/

PLEXUSnyc and Rachel Valinsky are pleased to present Room #4 in the upcoming installment of A NIGHT OF CLUTTER.
COME JOIN US!
Saturday, Septmeber 8th – 8pm-1am @ Funkadelic Studios - 335 W35th St. 3rd floor
In this series—launched by Plexus (no. 4) presenter Brett Zweiman—live acts occupy each room of Hell’s Kitchen’s Funkadelic Studios for an evening, giving way to a diverse program of performances and experimentations.
Room #4 will mobilize dancers, visual artists, and musicians for a three-hour evolving collaboration. Dancers Tamrin Goldberg, Sarah Friedman, and Emily McNeely, explore improvised movement, working alongside Prism House, a Brooklyn-based audio, visual, and performance collective. The evening will also feature video by artist and Plexus (no. 1) presenter Ariel Yelen.
A Night of Clutter, in true Plexus spirit, offers open and collaborative spaces for expression of all kinds, and we are really excited to be a part of it!
Stay tuned to read more about Room #4 and our Clutter experience — coming soon!
