Support Clocktower

Clocktower has always been unconventional. Since 1972, we have been at the forefront of the New York art scene, showcasing groundbreaking visual, performance, and musical artists who are pioneers of their field, in daring and dynamic settings --from the center of Manhattan to the furthest reaches of the city.

Our 2017 mission is no different, but our visions have grown even larger. With no space to call our own, we have created pop-up radio stations overseas, printed pristine risograph zines, edited unbelievable audio guides for landmark exhibitions, produced fast-paced cassette mixtapes, presented one-of-a-kind experimental studio performances from both emerging and established artists, hosted DIY tape fairs, took over a midtown movie theater with fierce female bands, and so much more.

Our dreams are truly endless, but their realization is dependent on your generous support.
