The Wet Lounge: A Meadowlands Clubhouse
October 25 | 7:30-10:30p
The Wet Lounge: A Meadowlands Clubhouse is a pop-up community space dedicated to the pleasures of intimacy and co-existence with Jersey City’s neighboring ecosystem, the New Jersey Meadowlands. Brought to you by SMUSH Gallery and the Meadowlands Party, a new initiative devoted to creating intimate and just connections with the Meadowlands, we invite you for an evening of chill vibes, tunes, and relaxation inside a saucy multi-media dream of ecological communion with our local wetlands.
The Wet Lounge is a counter-space to the opening of the new mega-mall American Dream Meadowlands, an enormous complex of shopping and entertainment set to open after 16 years under construction. In response, we invite you to get to know the squishy and strange land it occupies and engage with how the project fits into the long, complex, and often extractive history of land use in the Meadowlands.
