A Marriage: 1 (Suburbia) Apr 23 - May 4
Step into a double self-portrait steeped with the iconography of the American Dream in Nick Vaughan and Jake Margolin’s panorama of visual and performative art, A Marriage: 1 (Suburbia). The husbands commandeer HERE’s physical space with a blend of performance art, video, sculpture, drawing, photography, and sound, to create immersive installations, with visual art on display during gallery hours, and performance actions occurring nightly. Navigating through the gallery space, both theatres, dressing rooms, restrooms and lobby, it’s your experience to curate; each moment you choose to explore works in tandem with the next to reveal the artists’ experiences of their same-sex marriage and express their deep ambivalence towards their new standing as a Normal American Couple.
May 9 - 11 at HERE/Chelsea Vocational High School
May 16 & 17 at LaGuardia Performing Arts Center
May 22 at El Museo del Barrio
City Council Meeting is a participatory theater event about empathy, democracy and power. Created by Aaron Landsman, Mallory Catlett and Jim Findlay, the project combines local government transcripts, original writing and a surprise ending, revealing the city we make together each night by performing it. Who are you in this place? You live here. What’s your problem?
You Are Dead. You Are Here June 5 - 29
You Are Dead. You Are Here. tells the charged story of an encounter between an American soldier and an Iraqi girl blogger, through the lens of the technologies that aid and connect them. Inspired by the convergence of video-game environments, virtual technologies and military research, the show incorporates animated landscapes from “Virtual Iraq”, a virtual-reality program used in veterans’ P.T.S.D. therapy.
