The Armory Party 2016

Posted on January 21, 2016

The Museum of Modern Art hosted The Armory Party, a benefit event with live music and DJs celebrating the opening of The Armory Show and Armory Arts Week, on Wednesday, March 2, 2016. The Armory Show is New York’s leading international fair for modern and contemporary art, showcasing the most important artworks of the 20th and 21st centuries. The evening reception, along with the daytime Early Access Preview at Piers 92 and 94, benefits exhibition programming for MoMA.

Musicians, DJs, and go-to producers known for mesmerizing funk and neo-disco, Holy Ghost! (aka the NYC-based duo of Alex Frankel and Nicholas Millhiser) have released two critically acclaimed albums, 2011’s self-titled debut and 2013’s Dynamics, on DFA Records. A remix album, 2015’s self-released Work For Hire also generated wide praise. Holy Ghost! have performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Late Show with David Letterman, toured with New Order, played at renowned festivals such as Coachella, Outside Lands, Primavera, and Bonnaroo, and remixed for Katy Perry, LCD Soundsystem, Moby, and more.

The 2016 Armory Party ran from 9:00 p.m. to midnight, and featured access to MoMA’s Marcel Broodthaers: A Retrospective exhibition. A VIP Hour will also be held from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m. and includes access to Jackson Pollock: A Collection Survey, 1934–1954, in addition to The Armory Party at 9:00 p.m.
