Date & Time
  • Thursday, August 17, 2017 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm
  • Location

    On the High Line at 14th St.

    Join us for a night of karaoke hosted by the glamorous and enigmatic CHEEKY LaSHAE. A fluid-identity avatar and performative structure designed by artist Kenya (Robinson), CHEEKY LaSHAE's Karaoke Universal blurs the boundary between audience and performer. For "Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 01011863," pop songs and politics combine in an investigation of freedom, offering us the opportunity to sing, reflect, and own the performer in us all.

    Now in its second year, Out of Line presents a new set of arresting, intriguing, and playful performances by some of New York City's most exciting contemporary artists.

    RSVP for this program beginning July 17. To be notified, please join our mailing list.
