This event has ended.

Before Peter Minuit spent his last glass coins in 1614 purchasing what is now known as New York City, the Orsidyte Lineage inhabited 400 square feet of earth at the intersection of 57th Street and Lexington Avenue. An entirely different breed from the Dutch settlers or the Lenape natives, the Orsidyte Lineage are a humble people with self-sustaining talents that have allowed them to remain hidden from the evolution of New York City for centuries. They have quietly remained on their land to this day, their long bones and wide hips draping traditional costumes across the rent-controlled corner untouched by the elements of harsh city life. Now, as never seen before, LAB Gallery will unveil to the world the prairie that lies behind the glass walls of this property.

Consisting of over fifteen artists, BabySkinGlove is a performance collective based out of Brooklyn directed by Bailey Nolan. Our productions are avant garde interpretations of historical events with an emphasis on contemporary issues including gender, feminism, sexual politics, and the dawn of the world wide web. With over 40 performances over the past three years BabySkinGlove has covered a span of history ranging from the dinosaurs to the Recession. These reenactments have taken the form of classic stage shows, performance installations, guerilla performances, dinner theatre, gallery exhibitions, private appearances, powerpoints, and video. In the past year BabySkinGlove has collaborated with accomplished artists including Ryan Trecartin, Lizzie Fitch, Terrance Koh, Max Steele, Jude Law, Gelitin, Vanessa Beecroft, Amanda Lepore, James Franco, Jordon Fox, and the Kardashians.
