On a pleasantly breezy evening of July 23rd, Slideluck ventured out into the high seas; or more accurately onto the New York Harbor in Tribeca. Aboard the Lilac, America’s only surviving steam-powered lighthouse tender, we gathered for the first ever SLIDELUCK Boatshow. Gearing up for the show, the crown buzzed with excitement. Illuminated by the golden sunset everyone enjoyed some delicious cheeses, meats, fresh veggies and fruit salads provided by Whole Foods Market. Sipping back refreshing Brooklyn Brewery Lager and Summer Ale, the waves swayed the boat and everyone got ready for the presentation.
The slideshow featured the unique short films shown for the first time at Slideluck Shortshow earlier this year. Curated by BOND/360, the show included works ranging from animation to documentary to stop motion and beyond. Some highlights were a Tom Waits narrated tribute to John Baldessari, created by the directorial duo, Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman, as well as some dramatic film reenactments by the Angulo brothers of The Wolf Pack movie.
It was a night of outstanding art, fabulous company, delicious eats, and refreshing libations. Special thanks to all of our partners and sponsors – Bond/360, Lilac Arts Series, Whole Foods Market, Souverain, Sandbox Studio and Brooklyn Brewery!
We definitely rocked the boat!
