Maggie Lee: Fall Rainbowz
Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) 264 Canal Street #3W
New York, NY 10013

November 8th, 2022
6:30 to 8:30 pm, performance at 7:30 pm

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) is pleased to present Maggie Lee: Fall Rainbowz, a special evening with the artist. Reflecting Lee’s unique collage-based approach and eclectic range of influences, this free event will take a hybrid form, flowing between a screening, performance, exhibition, and open-ended social gathering, transforming the space into a temporary extension of the artist’s studio. Lee will arrange and draw from a diverse array of found material and media, from Roger Vadim’s garish space opera Barbarella (1968) and Mauricio Kagel’s evasive musical compositions, to multicolored lightbulbs and freshly-fallen autumn leaves.

In the time-honored lineage of DIY distribution and punk show merch tables, an assortment of books, records, clothing, accessories, and other ephemera will be available for sale from Lee, Electronic Arts Intermix, Ailanthus Books, Fusetronsound, and Mittens Shop.

RSVP here.

Please note that we expect this event to reach capacity.

We will open the doors at 6:30 pm, and the performance will take place at 7:30 pm sharp. There will be a limited number of seats, plus standing room. We will pause new arrivals and re-entries for the duration of the performance. In the event we reach capacity, an RSVP does not guarantee entry.

Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI)’s venue is located at 264 Canal Street, 3W, near several Canal Street subway stations. Our floor is accessible by elevator (63" × 60" car, 31" door) and stairway. Due to the age and other characteristics of the building, our bathrooms are not ADA-accessible, though several such bathrooms are located nearby. If you have questions about access, please contact in advance of the event.

Masks are strongly encouraged. If you are experiencing a fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, or other symptoms that could be related to COVID-19, we ask that you please stay home.
