POPQUIZ, HOSTED BY RYAN MCNAMARA
TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2011
Who doesn’t love trivia? Especially art trivia?! PopRally present PopQuiz, an evening of art-related trivia held in conjunction with MoMA’s Contemporary Art from the Collection exhibition. Teams of up to six people register upon check-in to participate in three rounds of art trivia and games, with winners taking home prizes such as MoMA memberships. Style points will be rewarded to the team with the best name! If you plan on having a full team of six, make sure you all arrive early to leave plenty of time for registration. Smaller teams will have the option of joining forces with other guests to create teams of up to six people.
Hosted by Ryan McNamara, whose work was recently featured in MoMA PS1′s Greater New York exhibition, this event also features a DJ set by Tanlines.
Participants in PopQuiz will have exclusive access to the exhibition throughout the event.
Admission includes an exclusive exhibition viewing, trivia contest, and cocktails.

I’ve visited MoMa PS1 many times throughout the years, but last week at the New York Art Book Fair, I was transported back to my teenage years at Ann Arbor Community High. Also known as “Commie High”, this school started as a hippie education experiment in the early 1970s- and it actually worked. Community High does not have bells, a cafeteria, hall passes, tracking, AP classes, or sports teams. Unorthodox course offerings included subjects like Dream Analysis and Jazz Appreciation. The informal mascot was a rainbow colored AntiZebra, symbolizing nonconformism and individuality.
The yearbook typically had layouts like the following (step back from your monitor to get the full idea).
I feel I was most influenced by the “fashion cliques” like rockabilly kids, mods, and skinhead girls. These social tribes, among many others, had distinctively different haircuts, shoes and music preferences. Commie High kids took these identities seriously and authenticity was key. The worst thing you could be was a poseur. So if you were a punk, you had better know your hardcore bands.
These days there’s an extensive wait list to get into the progressive magnet school, which is public by the way. Alternative is “in”.
Anyway, back to the NY Art Book Fair. On Sunday, the scene on the front steps at the Book Fair looked like Comstock, which was the end of the year celebration at Commie High when all the indie bands performed.
This exhibit reminded me of some of the Commie classrooms- note the word “THINGNESS” is on the chalkboard.
I was drawn to the vendors selling vintage flyers for punk shows and underground zines. This is sooo what we were all about!
I even ran into an old friend from High School! Here I am with Leif Ritchey, who was like the coolest skater kid at Commie and now a Brooklyn based artist. His work is part of a group show at The Journal called Salad Days on exhibit until December 15th.
Printed Matter presents the fifth annual NY Art Book Fair, November 5–7 at MoMA PS1, Long Island City, Queens. The best part is that it’s free and open to the public! The Fair hosts over 200 international presses, booksellers, antiquarian dealers, artists and publishers from twenty countries, offering the best in contemporary art book publishing. It’s a truly great fair – I always leave with at least 4-5 books!
It’s not only a great place to buy and learn about new art publications but there are tons of events from screenings, book signings, and performances. Other events also include the third annual Contemporary Artists’ Books Conference, and The Classroom, a curated series of informal conversations between artists, together with readings, workshops and other artist-led events.
You definitely do not want to miss this if you are in the New York area.
