Upside Down & Inside Out With OK Go
Featuring special screenings and a Q&A
Feb 2 , 2017 Doors: 7:30pm Show: 8:00PM
With a career that includes award-winning videos, New York Times op-eds, a major label split and the establishment of a DIY trans-media mini-empire (Paracadute), collaborations with pioneering dance companies and tech giants, animators and Muppets, and an experiment that aims to encode their latest record, Hungry Ghosts, on actual strands of DNA, OK Go continue to fearlessly dream and build new worlds in a time when creative boundaries have all but dissolved. The band has been honored with a GRAMMY, three MTV Video Music Awards (one of them from Japan), a CLIO, three UK Music Video Awards, two Webby Awards (including one for their collaboration with The Muppets and Sesame Street), a spot in a Guggenheim installation, and a total of eight Cannes Lions — the advertising world's most prestigious awards. Most recently, their zero-gravity video, "Upside Down & Inside Out," was honored with the 2016 Smithsonian Ingenuity Award and has also been nominated for a GRAMMY for Best Music Video. Their latest video, "The One Moment," was launched last month on Facebook and was their fastest-growing video to date. Join us as we welcome OK Go to the Clive Davis Theater for special screenings and a talk back surrounding the band's recent viral videos. Following the screenings, OK Go will take questions from the audience.
