Anxious Spaces II: Aurora Halal



Drift into a dream state with this DJ set from Aurora Halal, performed as part of the Anxious Spaces II opening celebration at Knockdown Center on July 5th, 2015. Dark and hallucinatory like her floating video installation at Knockdown, Exactly Where I Am, this pulsing, looping techno mix will take you somewhere else.

Aurora Halal is a New York-based musician, video artist, photographer, and event producer. She is the creator of NYC’s underground party series Mutual Dreaming, and co-creator of Sustain-Release, a 700-person music and arts festival in Upstate NY. Since 2011 she has been touring the US and Europe, performing live music and visuals at festivals, universities and respected clubs. All her projects use immersive, experimental and non-commercial approaches to powerful effect. As a video editor she worked full time for Vice and since then has been working freelance with clients including record labels like Planet Mu, RVNG, and Absolut, Red Bull, and more.

Clocktower Exhibits & Events

RADIO SERIES

Clocktower Exhibits & Events is home to an archive of interviews with artists, curators, musicians, organizers, and more who have participated in Clocktower exhibitions and events throughout our organization’s history.

Many of the below recordings were documented while Clocktower was in the midst of a transformation. The original name, The Clocktower Gallery, was given to the exhibition, residency, and performance space in TriBeCa, founded by alternative spaces movement pioneer Alanna Heiss in 1972. After 2001, the Clocktower Gallery re-inaugurated its exhibition programming in 2005 as part of MoMA/PS1 and, after 2008, under the auspices of Art International Radio. In 2013, we moved on from our downtown Manhattan location, and have since renamed the organization Clocktower Productions, a title which encompasses our radio, exhibition, and event programming.

For more Clocktower history, listen to The Clocktower Oral History Project, in which such figures as Vito Acconci, Bill Beirne, Colette, Jeffrey Deitch, Mary Heilmann, Jene Highstein, Ann Magnuson, Richard Nonas and Joel Shapiro reflect upon their experiences with this unique New York space. Organized by artist Nancy Hwang for the Fall 2009 AVANT-GUIDE TO NYC: Discovering Absence exhibition at apexart.


NB: Clocktower Radio was launched by MoMA/PS1 in 2004 as the Web's first art radio station. It has been independent since 2009 and is licensed to host content created under PS1 management. Programs produced prior to 2011 may refer to our earlier URLs and station IDs, including WPS1.org, artonair.org, and Art International Radio.
