We at PS122 are are looking forward to a new documentary called Bronx Gothic, based on a piece we commissioned in 2014. Okwui Okpokwasili’s Bronx Gothic was part of our COIL Festival and was presented at Danspace Project to sold out houses. The documentary, by Andrew Rossi, who Made “The First Monday in May,” focuses on Okpokwasili’s artistic process, and follows her as she completes a final tour of the piece. The documentary itself has been on the festival circuit and will premiere at Film Forum on July 12 and then run for two weeks. We hope to see you there!

PS122 staff members have been honored to attend a number of CreateNYC events this year to weigh in on the city’s first Cultural Plan. CreateNYC recently released their findings from over 10,000 surveys they collected and over 400 events they presented at. If you haven’t yet attended an event or taken a survey, there is still time to give your feedback. There are a number of new polls online including an Equity poll, Affordability poll and Neighborhood Character poll, collecting feedback until 31. How do you imagine the future of NYC arts & culture? We are looking forward to seeing the results of the polls and being a part this inaugural cultural plan!

Dane Terry just released a new album called Wild of Town and it’s incredible. Several of the songs were recorded as part of Dane’s PS122 RAMP residency at BananAppeal studios in Brooklyn. Give us a ring at 212-477-5829 to hear it while you wait for us to pick up. Keeping up our tradition of entertaining callers with PS122 musical artists, you’ll be begging be put on hold to hear Dane’s anthemic track, “Company Man.”

Episode six of the excellent FABnyc art Work podcast is on the topic of Cultural Equity and they based the episode around a Long Table discussion FABnyc co-hosted with PS122 and The Loisaida Center where we discussed the NYC Cultural plan, and tried to unpack the term “Culturally Specific Organizations.”

You can subscribe to the art Work podcast on iTunes and get more information about PS122’s Long Table series.
