A new home for experimentation in NYC

Spaces for artists to take creative risks are an endangered breed.
We are opening a new one.

What is The Collapsable Hole?

The Collapsable Hole is a cavernous performance space in the basement of Westbeth Arts in New York City’s West Village. It is run by a group of eight artists and artist-run organizations. Originally founded in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2000 by Collapsable Giraffe and Radiohole in what was a run down garage, the first Hole was a home for "an approximate inventory of New York's most innovative artists” (Village Voice) and had a run of 13 years. After a few years in the wilderness, the Hole has been resurrected in new form but with its irrepressibly unruly ethos intact.

Radiohole's Super-Fun Exclusive Experimental TV Party Featuring Two Perimenopausal Wet Pussies & One Limp Dick is a party-performance experiment. It is part of Radiohole's broad exploration of the creative spirit of New York City in the 1970s and early 1980s. This era saw the birth of punk, hip-hop, new wave, no wave and radical artistic experimentation in every medium - including television! Many of NYC's brightest and weirdest brought their talents to cable access shows like Glenn O'Brien's "TV Party" or Coco Crystal's "If I Can't Dance You Can Keep Your Revolution". In the spirit of these TV Pioneers, we'll be hosting a show that could be a party or a party that could be a show, featuring interviews, special musical guests, drinking, dancing and as always, your favorite Radiohole personalities, Two Perimenopausal Pussies and One Limp Dick.
