Sam Ashby and Ginger Brooks Takahashi present a progression of the project they started in Cherry Grove in summer 2014 as part of Fire Island Artist Residency (FIAR). Drawing from Sam Ashby's archive of films made on the island, and activated through Ginger Brooks Takahashi's live modular synthesizer soundtrack, Fire Island Film + Sound is an audio-visual experience that explores the Island as a site of queer exile, utopia, sexual liberation and trauma.

White Columns is New York's oldest alternative art space. It was founded in 1970 by Jeffrey Lew and Gordon Matta-Clark as an experimental platform for artists. Originally located in SoHo (and known as the 112 Workshop/112 Greene Street), the organization was renamed White Columns when it moved to Spring Street in 1979. In 1991 White Columns moved to Christopher Street in the West Village, and in 1998 the gallery relocated to its present address on the border of the West Village and Meat Packing District.
