Probably one of the more important things that’s happening in my life is the anticipation of all things James Murphy everything. I’ve become infatuated with the man and am particularly excited for this exhibit as my interest in disco music has peaked as well, and I’m ready for the groovy goodness. There’s no date set for the exhibit yet, but there will be room replications of famous disco clubs from around the world, some disco inspired art and live performances (what would I do to see James Murphy spin again…things I can’t say over the internet [just kidding the internet is for weird shit like that but I won't tell you.... maybe it's the same answer to what I'd do for a Klondike bar....?]). Other than drooling over disco balls and James Murphy and the fact that he put it all together, this exhibit is especially important in examining a cultural movement that is continuously expanding. I haven’t seen a major boom in disco music (not like EDM at least), the disco world is quite vast, yet quiet. They make silent moves. Disco music and the culture that followed found many marginalized groups uniting for a common cause and became a source of identification as well. Just like when “Art in the Streets” was at the MOCA Geffen (the street art exhibit), it’s a cultural movement that’s still young, but needs to be documented. It needs emphasis on major figures, recognition of the “greats”, people who pushed the boundaries not only in the music but in the spaces the music was listened to, the atmosphere, the people who gave into disco, and gave it their all. Now that I’m done gushing, know that I’ll definitely be reporting back with dates and line-up announcements.
