This event has ended.

The central piece of the show will be the first time exhibition and public use of THE INSTRUMENT, with which Michael Portnoy will perform the night of the opening. Portnoy will expose a series of sculptures which are assemblages of objects featuring as central elements in proposed art projects/performances/films etc. (Ex.: The dotted lines in the middle of the road are covered in cinnamon and upholstered with white leather. The alligator is a mile away, by the window. Packet of cinnamon, white leather, red Lacoste polo shirt, mother-of-pearl, 2008.) These "proposals" are expressed gutturally by Portnoy through THE INSTRUMENT and transformed into songs which are inscribed upon each assemblage in mother-of-pearl.

Opening Reception on 2008-12-11 from 18:00 to 20:00
