A special performance of Ari Benjamin Meyers, K Club will be at the inaugural Art Basel Unlimited Night on Thursday June 16, 2022, 7–10pm.
Ari Benjamin Meyers' K Club is a performance work in an environment installation. Conceived for the artist’s solo exhibition at Officine Grandi Riparazioni – OGR, Turin in 2019, the work consists of a special environment (either existing or specially installed) and neon signage, a musical score, composed in collaboration with Deadbeat and released separately as a limited edition LP (available here), and a performance protocol that describes guidelines for the visitor’s experience.
Each visitor experiences the work on their own. A neon sign marks the entrance to the performance environment, where visitors will queue and be led to the club area one by one. At Art Basel Unlimited Night, being alone for 10 minutes will contrast with the bustling experience of the art fair environment. During the one-night limited run, only a few visitors will be able to enter K-Club. During the duration of the work, a visitor may wander through the room, dance or otherwise enjoy this individual clubbing experience. Visitors waiting outside, and potentially turned away, are participants in the larger performative component of this one-night only edition of K Club.
