Rhonda, The fictional disco diety whose mirrored legs dangle high above the dance floor of the notorious, self-professed 'polysexual hard party,' A Club Called Rhonda, commemorates her foray into art through a presentation of the one-night showcase Rhonda: A live Archive. |
Trademark of the 'anything goes' aesthetic infusing each monthly installment of the visually enhanced, sensorial dance ritual is the club's clever, faceless muse, Rhonda. Speaking in all caps to a growing entourage, Rhonda urges all to join in a one-night union of decadence and debauchery, a special occasion where fantasy and experience converge to create an immersive multimedia environment distinguishing A Club Called Rhonda as more than just a party. Integral to Rhonda's textual voice and call for hypersexualized liberation are the gender-bending, pop-inspired, sagacious slogans she preaches through the club's visual ambience, promotional artwork, and hedonistic artifacts.
Presenting a behind-the-scenes look at the evolution and making of the virtual club diva, Rhonda: A live Archive premiers the documentary Archival Jello, produced in partnership with MOX. Celebrating the experiential transcendence Rhonda inspires through her iconic guests, the evening follows with special live performances TBA. Rhonda's take-over of teh Independent is complete with an exhibition of teh club's signature artwork accompanied by live music from resident DJs. Resurrecting selections from Archival Jello: A Club Called Rhonda Retrospective previously showcased at Phyllis Navidad's PoptART Gallery in May 2012, teh exhibition features multidisciplinary works from Trevor Tarczynski, stills from official photographers Meredith Jenks and Michael Mendonza, and video installations from Ryan Granic.
