Rouge58 presents the New York debut of Peel Slowly and See, a multidisciplinary project of Bananamania, Hugo Capablanca’s conceptual platform which functions mainly as record label, mobile dancefloor and situationist disco.

For Peel Slowly and See, Capablanca has put together a cross-paltform show that enhances a temporary store, polaroid performance, and on site installation and disco. The show will also unveil the Bananamania t-shirt, a limited edition, hand silkscreened item which will be sold exclusively at Rouge58 during New York Fashion Week. As part of the exhibition, Rouge58 will serve as scenario for the worldwide premiere of “Peel Slowly”, Capablanca’s new video installation featuring fashion icon Tanja Siren. DJ’s will soundtrack the opening night and a guerrilla bar with refreshments will be operating while the space is open.

About Rouge58:
Rouge58 opened in August 2010 in the heart of Williamsburg. The gallery is a blank canvas for emerging and established artists working across media, with a focus that extends beyond the realm of traditional fine art into the myriad forms of contemporary creative experimentation. Curated art, mixed with music, fashion and film screenings, blurs boundaries and breaks down barriers. There are no rules in creativity. It's all about fun in the end, isn't it?
