Opening Saturday, August 13th, from 5PM - 9PM
On view through Tuesday, August 30th
For this one night event, Chicago-based artist and designer Bridgette Buckley will share her collection of rave and club flyers spanning from 1992-2001. Buckley writes:
“From the very first party I attended in Boulder, Colorado in 1993 called Back to the Basics, hosted by ‘Mike E’, I fastidiously collected flyers for every event I went to, for events even loosely connected to those I attended or wanted to attend, and for events featuring acquaintances who were DJs, promoters, producers, dancers and artists. I kept them as a record of my own experience and to document that moment in history.”
Bridgette Buckley and Public Collectors have produced a free offset printed club invitation for the event which features a short text by Buckley on her collection. Additionally, Bridgette will be playing music from this period. If you can’t attend, the collection will be available for viewing by appointment for a week following August 13th. Contact Brandon Alvendia (alvendia1 [at] gmail.com) of The Storefront to schedule a visit. Scans from Bridgette Buckley’s collection will be uploaded to the Public Collectors Flickr page.
