a space of limit as possibility


May 14 – July 30, 2020


Thursdays at 8pm (except as posted otherwise)

Fridman Gallery and CT::SWaM present SO​⅃​OS, weekly performances inside the empty gallery.

Operating within NYC’s shelter-in-place guidelines, only one person – the performer – is present. Equipped with multiple microphones and cameras (mixed remotely), the space itself becomes a generative agent for the performer.

As the world moves online, our bodies remain situated within physical boundaries, resulting in a new kind of dissonance. SO​⅃​OS turns this phenomenon inside out, the shuttered confines of the gallery creating a new immediacy.
