A new documentary about Larry Levan and Paradise Garage is available to watch online now.
Resident DJ at New York's Paradise Garage for a decade, the late Larry Levan, who died in 1992 aged just 38 years old, presided over a 'Saturday Mass' congregation of devoted dancers who listened to him define the art of DJing.

If you’ve ever felt like simply looking at art wasn’t quite immersive enough, a new installation that lets you hear the artwork is something you might need to see.
That’s the idea behind British multidisciplinary artist Oliver Beer’s new Vessel Orchestra, which turns 32 sculptures, vessels, and decorative pieces from the Metropolitan Museum of Art into a musical instrument.
How, exactly, does Beer play a bunch of priceless artefacts from the 8th century B.C. without accidentally turning them into dust?
