Sol Nova is a DJ with a keen interest in sound who believe DJing is a radical, political act as a Queer, woman-identifying AfroLatinx. She infiltrates spaces with visceral, bass-laden, drum-heavy club constructions of contemporary electronic dance music, giving prominence to music created by artists of and from the African diaspora - both local and global. 

SVA’s fall 2016 art programming launches with “The Beat Goes On,” an exhibition featuring work by Elia Alba, Kevin Beasley, Paul D. Miller, a.k.a., D.J. Spooky, and Tameka Norris, a.k.a. Meka Jean, and curated by visual artist Derrick Adams. For “The Beat Goes On,” the SVA Chelsea Gallery has been transformed into four distinct listening rooms, each presenting a solo show by one of the featured artists. Encompassing photography, sculpture, installation, performance and video works, each room takes music and the history of recorded and transmitted sound as its inspiration. On view August 20 – September 17, “The Beat Goes On” is the first exhibition mounted in the gallery’s newly renovated space. A reception with performances will take place Thursday, September 8, 6:00 – 8:00pm.
