Disco existed before we were all born and will exist afterwards. It is a ritual—it is a celebration.
— Grace Jones

The past year has upended day-to-day existence and put the rhythms and movements of nightlife on pause. International lockdown measures and curfews swept people off the streets and shuttered bars and dance halls. In the absence of these alternative spaces—sites of self-invention and refuge for the city’s subcultures—urban life has come to a standstill. The artists featured in From Disco to Disco evoke both euphoria and loss: the hedonism of a carefree night out and the need for escape and catharsis. The exhibition is a reminder of the utopian promise that nightlife holds as a space for collective release—of bodies in motion, packed together in ways we no longer take for granted.
