About


Chaos Computer is an open and evolving collective of musicians, visual artists, curators, bookers, community organizers, and sound engineers dedicated to providing space, equipment, and expertise to New York City’s DIY arts community.

We have created a place where divergent and transgressive work can be shown and enjoyed, regardless of its commercial viability. A place where marginalized or underrepresented artists can make their work and be paid for it. A place that celebrates experimentation, mischief, and imperfection. And finally a place with a powerful, articulate, and well engineered sound system that can elevate and expand the music running through it; using our sound system should be an enjoyable opportunity, not another technological or social barrier that must be overcome.
 
Chaos Computer is built upon trust and transparency. We will not recreate yet another venue run by an anonymous council of owners who profit off and make decisions for the community of artists they claim to support. We are a no-profit space organized by volunteers.
