RECEPTION: Living large in your small NY space
Décor Aid 3-Sep-14
Astra Howard will present a series of Action Research/Performance projects undertaken over recent months on the streets of New York. These public space interventions build on previous experimental investigations of the city made in such diverse locations as: Delhi, Beijing, Hanoi, Paris, Coventry, New York and various sites across Australia. On the sidewalks of Brooklyn, Manhattan and Peekskill, participatory booth/vehicles are used as surveillance devices with a narrative intent. Developing live scripts act as catalysts for discussion with local communities, creating opportunities to debate topical issues and generate new tales of the city.
Constanza Levine will discuss the different facets of her work which cover a broad spectrum from painting to work that is more sculptural. The emphasis will be on commonalities of technique, materials, and shared geometric criterion.
