Performance: "The Tiki, Tiki Club" by artist Shaun Leonardo

Friday, February 15 2013
7:00 am - 10:00 am

The day after Valentine's day, join No Longer Empty and artists Shaun Leonardo, Andrew Leonardo and Ivan Monforte in re-defining the Tiki Tiki club, a popular Queens nightclub phenomenon.

Originating from Mexican and Central American nightlife culture, these clubs invite men to pay a female $2 to be their dance partner for a song.  Unlike strip clubs, women do not take off their clothes - just provide companionship during a cumbia, salsa, merengue or bachata song. 

The Tiki Tiki Club revises this 'romantic transaction' by giving women the chance to pay men for a dance - reversing the exchange.  The exhibition space will be transformed into into a nightclub for the evening, with music and drinks contributing to the night club atmosphere.  Join us for a night of dancing and Queens culture!

Cost: Free to enter, $2 per dance
