Soho stalwart Artists Space, which just opened its new Books & Talks space in Tribeca, is, in a sense, expanding again—albeit only temporarily—during the week of Frieze New York. From May 3 to May 6, the institution, directed by Stefan Kalmár, will host club nights, titled “NEIN POP,” at subMercer, at 147 ½ Mercer Street, near Prince Street in Soho.

Each of those nights, DJ Princess Julia will spin, joined by guest DJs like White Columns director Matthew Higgs, artist Cheyney Thompson, No Bra, Jon Santos (who also helped organize the affair) and the pleasantly omnipresent Venus X. Queue-cutting wristbands are going for $10 a night ($20 if you want one for all nights) and a table for five, with a bottle of Kanon Organic Vodka, is going for $200.

The London Evening Standard has this to say about DJ Princess Julia:

One of the first-ever female DJs, she came to notice as a Blitz kid in the early Eighties, along with Marc Almond and Boy George. She was a resident DJ at the legendary Kinky Gerlinky nightclub and appeared in Visage’s 1981 Fade to Grey video.

All of the proceeds from the events will support Artist Space. Wristbands and tables are available now.
