Warper Party: Maxx Klaxon

As part of her production and project, DJ Shakey hosted a multi-room, multi-media performance gala at the Clocktower Gallery. Over 24 artists occupied 8 spaces for 3-plus hours, illuminating the theme of alternative controllers for electronic instruments, both audio and video.

Electronic musician Maxx Klaxon was one of the many artists that performed live that night. He hypnotized gallery visitors with futuristic beats inspired by Miami, where Klaxon was born and raised, and its club scene. Channeling 1980s electro-pop, Klaxon (aka Max Clarke) combines swelling synths and jumpy drum machine beats to bring heady sounds to your ears, and also shares unique music as co-curator of New York City's SPLICE performance series.On January 12, 2012


Clocktower Exhibits & Events


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.
