Program Description

Please join us as award winning film and television costume designer, and nightlife icon Patricia Field ushers in THE FUN Conference 2013. For over four decades Field’s namesake Greenwich Village boutique has been a defining influence on the intersection of nightlife and fashion in New York. A pioneer in her own right, Field’s is emblematic of the diversity and originality in ever-evolving culture of nightlife production. 

Following Ms. Field’s keynote address, a screening of 2012 FUN Fellows, FCKNLZ’s, project, “FCKNLZ on Broadway” will be staged. In November 2012, in celebration of Club Kid Herstory Month, FCKNLZ re-created the legendary appearances of 90s club kids on TV talk shows such as Donahue and Geraldo in front of a live studio audience in The Museum of Arts and Design Theater. Guests were invited to come dressed as their favorite club kids to participate in what manifested as part revivalist performance, part forward-facing analysis of the legacy of club kid protagonists.
