Join us for the #EroticCity40 symposium at NYU 370 Jay Street, Rm 202, Brooklyn, NY & livestreamed on the homepage of this website from April 12–14, 2024 (Friday through Sunday) to celebrate the four albums that defined 1984—Prince’s Purple Rain, The Time’s Ice Cream Castle, Apollonia 6, and Sheila E’s The Glamorous Life—alongside the Purple Rain film. 

Over 3 days, there will be 48 speakers and a total of 14 sessions, featuring 16 presentations, 5 roundtable discussions, a daily 80s fashion contest, a special in-person segment of What Did Prince Do This Week?, and a very special keynote with Vaughn Terry, best known as one-half of the design team duo Louis & Vaughn, who crafted Prince’s iconic looks during the Purple Rain era! We will also discuss film, race, gender, and sexuality in addition to music and fashion.
