SOLD OUT: #PurpleReigns: A Tribute to Prince

John L. Tishman Auditorium, University Center
General Public 

This event is sold out.

This spring marked loss of a major artistic and cultural icon - Prince.  Even President Barack Obama publicly mourned him and the United States Senate passed a resolution praising his achievements. Prince has had such a strong impact – from the boundary-pushing music he wrote and played, the musicians he supported, to the image and fashion he projected. He garnered fans worldwide across age, race, gender, sexual orientation and music genres.

In honor of what would have been Prince's 58th year and inspired by the Black Lives Matter's hashtag acknowledging Prince's passing, New School faculty Julia Ott, Simon Critchley, Deva WoodlyClaire Potter and Alyson Palmer, a performer from BETTY, as they reflect on the unique place The Purple One will forever hold in the cultural zeitgeist, followed by a dance party celebration of his amazing music and visual style.
