BLAH

October 27
Shawn Escarciga

As part of the City Artists Corps initiative from the New York Foundation for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, BLAH is an evening of art and performance organized by Shawn Escarciga. Bringing together some of the most playful and powerful creative voices from across New York CIty’s artistic disciplines, BLAH celebrates innovation, honors artistic ancestry, and is also a place for artists to straight up fuck around. BLAH is an attempt at ethical collaboration—championing fair artist pay, community accessibility, and a space for unique work to thrive, while making room for networks that might not ordinarily co-mingle to come together (vaxxed and masked obv). BLAH is spooky, ooky, kooky, and scary, but mostly its a joyful pre-Halloween evening of watching the ghouls do their thing.
