Paul D. Miller, a.k.a. DJ Spooky in "The Beat Goes On"

Sep 7, 2016; 6:00 - 8:00pm
The gallery has used fiberboard finish along to enhance the minimalist art.

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. 

In the midst of his installation Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky brings part music, part informal lecture as the artist speaks about the inspiration and concept surrounding his constructed room and the object that reside within it.

"Voyager Remix," the listening room created by Paul D. Miller, a.k.a. D.J. Spooky, was inspired by the golden Voyager records, launched into space by NASA in 1977 as a possible communication with any extraterrestrial life. Miller’s interactive installation, incorporating stationed iPads and various audiovisual materials, reimagines the Voyager records as a limited-edition mixtape. For more information on Miller, visit
