Inaugural opening of the new Glasshouse location;
'Public Safety' is a large scale installation of “performance facilities” & facilitators, that transform the entire storefront and project space of Glasshouse into a “participatory performance machine”, giving a comic, technical interpretation to the generating mechanisms of participatory performance art.
The title is taken from speeches made by public officials regarding the OWS Movement protests and similar uprisings of past year, when justifying the use of aggressive tools against protestors. Also on view is the sound installation 'Open System Audio Surveillance' by Fates that gives Glasshouse's 'Bubble' (closed circuit camera installation) new vocal life.
Please join us for a night of performance and introductions.
We proudly announce our sponsors include Brooklyn Brewery, 1800 Tequila Coconut and Crest Hardware. Let's start September off right: Participate and drink to your delight!
