Anxious Spaces II: Via App

Via App (Dylan Scheer) performs her restless electronic creations in a live set for the closing performance of Anxious Spaces II, the annual exhibition and performance festival presented by Clocktower at Knockdown Center. Dylan Scheer is a producer and performing artist based in Queens. She sculpts and collages her synthesized sound with audio samples from a wide range of user-upload sites, field recordings, and popular culture semiotics to create a confused and dynamic narrative. Her work references an amalgam of club music throughout history, while refusing to adhere to any categorizable style. Recorded live on July 26, 2015.


Clocktower Exhibits & Events


The Clocktower Gallery was founded by the alternative spaces movement pioneer Alanna Heiss in 1972. After a hiatus as a gallery space (after the Sept. 11, 2001 events nearby), the Clocktower Gallery reinaugurated its exhibition programming in 2005 as part of MoMA/PS1 and, after 2008, under the auspices of the newly founded Art International Radio (now Clocktower Productions). Clocktower Exhibits is home to interviews with and performances by its exhibitions' participating artists and curators over these many years.

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. .
