WORK IN PROGRESS SHOWING
Ralph Lemon

Thursday, December 1, 1:30 PM
FREE

Ralph Lemon presents the 2-channel video installation of his latest work, giving a sense of an experience which will eventually encompass live performance, surround sound, and two large scale projections in an open environment where the audience can roam.

Evelyn's Café will be open from 11:30 AM to 2 PM for Eat Local Lunch.



PERFORMANCE
Japanther: The Cake of The 3 Towers

Friday + Saturday, December 2 + 3, 8 PM
Tickets

The three towers are prison, museum, and (housing) project, albeit loosely. Music, video, and performance draw parallel lines between three industrial archetypes. Moving through these structures, the artists utilize fragments of their environment to envision a utopian creative endgame. Meanwhile, an Austrian super villain (Florian Reither) attempts to unite and destroy the dystopian worlds. The Cake of The 3 Towers (TCo3T) is a collaborative project featuring Japanther, Schuyler Maehl, Florian Reither, and Felice Faison commissioned for Quote Unquote: Experiments in Time-Based Text, an interdisciplinary series presenting work by artists that use an existing text as a departure point for installation, film, and performance.
