DUSKLIT is the East Coast's one night interactive art festival. With twilight as a backdrop, DUSKLIT 2018 features 38 immersive installations, performances, and site-specific environments by 64 artists from Canada and across the United States.
Featuring performance art, new media, music, dance, poetry, and interdisciplinary collaborations, DUSKLIT projects include elaborate environments, interactive sound installations, roving dance performances, and other experiential offerings. By engaging in these installations, visitors join the festival as an essential collaborative element, bringing DUSKLIT to life.
The festival takes place outdoors on the Seligmann Homestead. The interdisciplinary, multisensory nature of DUSKLIT projects makes the festival accessible to visitors of all ages and backgrounds.
DUSKLIT is presented on the historic Seligmann Homestead, Sugar Loaf, New York. Once home to the Surrealist Kurt Seligmann, the 55-acre property carries a history of art and magic, and bears the mark of Marcel Duchamp, Kay Sage, Dorothea Tanning, and Max Ernst.
With the exception of the Guest House, which has a single step, the Seligmann Homestead's grounds and outbuildings are fully accessible, with accessible parking available on-site in the Upper Lot. If you have access needs not addressed here, email us -- email@example.com -- and we'll work with you to support them.
The Seligmann Center is located in Sugar Loaf, New York, a historic craft village just 50 miles northwest of Manhattan.
