Untitled Final Friday: A(me)ricana

featuring Kate Speer

Untitled Final Fridays is the DAM’s monthly late-night program featuring unconventional experiences developed in collaboration with local creatives and community members.

In August, examine the imagined America so near-and-dear-and-sometimes-with-fear-to-our-hearts. Kick-up your feet with line dances, folklórico, and interactive art experiences that shed light on the American dream, inspired by The Light Show and the creative practice of Kate Speer.

Spotify playlist curated by Kate Speer.
