New York based artist Sean Vegezzi’s film DMYCC (2017) is presented at OUTPUT gallery to initiate a dialogue about art in Liverpool and the space of its production and presentation. DMYCC documents 10 years of appropriating a disused, underground subway station in downtown lower Manhattan. In Vegezzi’s words, “DMYCC is an initialism that encompasses the physical space itself, the desire to gain access to it, and a shifting roster of efforts to install and enact a private recreational domain within it.”
Located within Kazimier Garden’s new gallery space, OUTPUT gallery, the exhibited film DMYCC (an acronym for Downtown Manhattan Youth Community Club) will form a departure point for the event Downtown Liverpool Art Space Conversation (DLASC ). Sufea Muhammad Noor, Michael Lacey and Danielle Waine will be invited to discuss art spaces in Liverpool today, in the context of the thriving art scene and the city’s high profile art institutions and international Biennial.
DLASC is part of a residency undertaken by its curator Sunil Shah, at Metal Liverpool.
The event is free. Everyone is welcome.

Exhibition dates: 27-30 September 2018, 12-6pm
