The only place to sit at Warhol's Silver Factory was the Red Couch. Originally found on the street by Billy Name, the Red Couch became the hub for long conversation about Art and Revolution. And when the factory was gone, the Red Couch returned to the street. And who knows, it may still be there....

The Red Couch Salon, curated and hosted by Justin Sayre (The Meeting*, Night of a Thousand Judy's) is a monthly reading and art series held at Le Petit Versailles, from June to September.

Like the Red Couch, it is set to provide a meeting place to bring new work and discussions, showcasing the work of emerging and established New York artists, but also become a space for experiments and deep conversations about Art in the changing landscape of New York.

The entire series is dedicated to the Legacy of Poet and Superstar, Taylor Mead.

A COLLECTIVE CINEMA at Le Petit Versailles, 346 East Houston Street

$5 suggested - Rain or shine!

Created in 1973, the Collective for Living Cinema was an outpost of experimental cinema located on White Street in Lower Manhattan. It regularly presented work by filmmakers such as Ken Jacobs, Johan van der Keuken, Yvonne Rainer, Christine Vachon, Dziga Vertov and many others who created films outside of the commercial mainstream. Annette Michelson pointed out that The Collective "attempted to break down distinctions between industrial film and avant-garde film, between films that form part of a classical canon and those which are on the margins or periphery of canonical taste." In the late 1980s, the Collective was forced to move from its 52 White Street location (due to legal and financial issues related to the building's certificate of occupancy and the NYC building codes for motion picture theaters) to a new space across the street. With rising costs, the gentrification of TriBeCa, and the debt incurred in creating a new theater, the Collective closed its doors in the early 1990s.

Returns to Le Petit Versailles for the fourth time since he debuted in our humble little garden on a balmy summer’s eve in 2011. His sound has been described as Freestyle Acoustic Rock. His music is a blend of moody, guitar driven rock and polyrhythmic groove all run through the filter of a very serious Singer/Songwriter. His talent shines through as a solo artist when he flat-picks his way through complicated and lightning-fast arrangements and also while he uses a Loop Station to create mesmerizing soundscapes upon which he lays blistering rock, blues and jazz licks, darkened by his extensive use of effect pedals.
In fewer words: Get into it.

Starts at 5PM.

A slow dance affair starts right after Garrin at LPV - Starts at 7PM

We encourage all of you to practice your rumba sways. From sounds, to visuals, to summer concoctions - we’ll get all your senses stimulated; Bring your hips, your lovers and your summer couture, for an early evening with the family.
