ABOUT THE ARTISTS
TYGAPAW (Dion McKenzie) is a multi-disciplined producer and DJ based in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Her Jamaican ancestry and upbringing fused with her 13 years living in New York City have influenced a music style she dubs “Sultry Club.” She incorporates sexy 90’s R&B sounds with futuristic vibes and intricate melodies that are as much for the club as they are for a chill kiki at your home girls crib. She is the curator behind “Fake Accent,” a monthly queer club night that has featured DJ’s such as Rizzla, False Witness, JX Canon, HD, Mursi Layne and more, and also the co-curator behind the queer Caribbean party series and creative platform, “SHOTTAS NYC.”
Elaine Healy Atelier is interested in the intersection of personal style & fine art. Inspirations include texture & modification of raw materials, the human body & organic forms, technology & mapping, repetition & sound. Through her Spring/Summer 2019 collection, she continues to push boundaries through experimentation with technical textiles and surface manipulations.
KING RELD is a brand of wearable design, performance, and installation art influenced by biomimicry and technological and high-end materials. She explores how fashion affects our self-image through beauty gluttony, cravings of luxury, and the over-exaggeration of our features.
