The screening will include works by: Amanda Alfieri, Peter Fankhauser, Molly Lowe, Micki Pellerano, Joshua Zucker-Pluda, Jordan Rathus, and MM Serra with a special performance by Peter Fankhauser. Surno is a New York-based artist and founder and director of Cinema 16, a performance series that pairs contemporary musicians with experimental films.

“DiA” is an exhibition and event series that uses available space in New York to create in-depth projects highlighting New York-based artists. “DiA” takes advantage of a seemingly down time in New York City and activates it with performances, screenings and exhibitions. In its third year, the exhibition and events of “DiA” will take place on the LILAC, located on Pier 25 in TriBeCa, New York. The LILAC is a 1933 steam-powered lighthouse tender that was decommissioned in 1972 and is now a museum ship. The exhibition on the LILAC will comprise site-specific installations by Peter Brock, Maureen Cavanaugh, Naomi Clark/Fort Makers, Myeongsoo Kim, Jordan Rathus, Colette Robbins, Chad Stayrook, Molly Surno, Naama Tsabar, and Byron Westbrook with scheduled events throughout the course of the exhibition.
