ACT II / PROPS
It's the second act and this next part is about staged realities, special effects, and the moment when artifice becomes artifact.
Please join us on Friday August 24th from 8-10pm for the opening of a group show including works by: Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Alex Israel, Owen Kydd, Meghann McCrory & Ali Prosch, Daniel Small and Sarah Rara.
Just as props are meant to, on screen or set, read as real, these 7 players will present a series of objects and images whose function is to mislead.
They will each, in their own way, engage in this deception, with the promise that in the theatrical and cinematic "real" you cannot trust the moon to really be the moon.
We hope to see you here again,
The exhibition will be on view until September 14th.
With performances by Jibade-Khalil Huffman and Martine Syms on September 9th at 8pm.
And NO SIGNAL BLUE, a performance by Meghann McCrory & Ali Prosch, on September 14th at 8pm.
visits: Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Fridays 12-6pm & other unpredictable hours.
Pssssss: Last month we opened as a theater. We started with the idea that the Set is the threshold between something real and the beginning of a fiction, the purgatory of experience lingering between these two stages. The point of entry at which we transition from seeing to imagining... The disentangling of this thought will come about in three shows: The Epilogue by Emily Mast, The Props and The Academy, an installation and performance series by Scott Benzel opening September 21st.
The Epilogue is over, the second act can begin.
