Unless you’ve been un-living under a tombstone, you know Art F City’s Goth Benefit took over the dungeon of Collapsable Hole Tuesday night. It’s an evening few of us will forget. Just in case we do, however, photographer Liz Ligon was there to document it thoroughly. From Hot Topic merch raffles to the goth opera stylings of Joseph Keckler, it was wild night. See for yourself below.

The time has finally come. Our Goth Benefit is here. We’ll be converting Collapsable Hole into a goth wonderland, complete with drag performers, surprise guests, and options such as handcuffs for couples. (We’re also having a goth couple outfit contest, so plan accordingly). If last year’s benefit was any indication, this is basically going to be the party of the year.

Wednesday, nurse your hangover with a likely-nipple-tastic Betty Tompkins solo show at Marlborough Contemporary. Other highlights this week include Siebren Versteeg’s digital paintings at bitforms on Thursday, the annual Seven on Seven conference at the New Museum on Saturday, and Sunday’s open studios at the Studio Museum in Harlem.

Don’t forget: Buy your Goth Opera tickets now!

We are a people in mourning. A dark shadow has been cast from Gotham’s blackest tower, stretching across the land. We lament at its doorstep.

We, the nation’s bloggers, journalists, artists, and critics were some of the first to cry. But our cries went unheeded. Now we must paint our lips in the darkest of hues and adorn our bodies with the garments of bereavement. It is time for our sadness to be made visible.

It is time for a Goth Opera.

In an era when independent journalism couldn’t be more critical, Art F City will throw its first goth opera to benefit this essential work, featuring the rich, versatile 3+ octave voice of Joseph Keckler.  Like a black velvet hood, our event will instill an element of mystery opulence—all in support of independent journalism and the arts in 2017.

by Whitney Kimball on October 30, 2014

Fuck you, workplace. Joseph Keckler joins the chorus of artists throughout the ages who think you should all go shroud yourselves in vinyl and return to the Goth of your youth. Emerge from the cubicle like the black swan that you are inside.

[Thank-you Marina Galperina]
