Tropic of Cancer, an annual art and music benefit themed around the "soul of the tropics," returns this July with another stunning lineup of artists and DJs. The collaborators will transform the 7500 Sq Ft Supreme Trading gallery and bar, into a sensory journey through the cultures of the equator. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Small Planet Fund, supporting grassroots movements around the world fighting the root causes of hunger and social injustice.
The Casita - Tucked away in corner neighborhood gardens of East Harlem, and originatingin Puerto Rico, the casita ("little house") is a place where a community gathers,playing live music, meeting friends, family and preparing an afternoonbarbeque. It is a vernacular structure that dates back to the rich days of PuertoRico's farming economy. This installation, recently constructed for a show atthe Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico, is now travelling to NYC for Tropic of Cancer. Created by Doze Green, David Ellis, Chris Mendoza, Jose Parla, and Rostarr.
