Recent sets include, Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil (São Paulo, Brazil); 1-54 Contemporary Art Fair (Brooklyn, NY); Ken + Cook (SoHo, NY); Wu Room (Chinatown, NY); Solomon + Kuff (Harlem, NY) and recurring nights at Beverly's (LES, NY).

SVA’s fall 2016 art programming launches with “The Beat Goes On,” an exhibition featuring work by Elia Alba, Kevin Beasley, Paul D. Miller, a.k.a., D.J. Spooky, and Tameka Norris, a.k.a. Meka Jean, and curated by visual artist Derrick Adams. For “The Beat Goes On,” the SVA Chelsea Gallery has been transformed into four distinct listening rooms, each presenting a solo show by one of the featured artists. Encompassing photography, sculpture, installation, performance and video works, each room takes music and the history of recorded and transmitted sound as its inspiration. On view August 20 – September 17, “The Beat Goes On” is the first exhibition mounted in the gallery’s newly renovated space. 

Free and open to the public
