THIS SATURDAY Dec. 7th at 12:30pm, join Alex McKenzie for the playback of Conversations From Yesterday on The High Line @ 16th Street in the seating area under the covered section above Chelsea Market, followed by an artist talk at Kianga Ellis Projects about his solo installation now on view through January 11, 2014.
Conversations From Yesterday is an ongoing work by Alex McKenzie that has a social basis and consists of setting up a situation where two individuals can have a conversation in a public space. That conversation is recorded and then played back via a portable stereo system exactly 24 hours after the original conversation took place in the exact same location.
James Wagner and Jennette Mullaney have accepted our invitation to meet for a conversation this Friday on The High Line bench (originally planned for this bench above 24th Street, but moved due to rain). Their 30 minute conversation will be recorded and played back THIS Saturday at exactly 12:49pm. Please join us on The High Line beginning at 12:30pm to hear the recording which will be followed by an artist talk in the gallery beginning at approximately 1:45pm.
*In the event of rain on FRIDAY, the Friday conversation and Saturday’s playback will take place on The High Line at the (covered) Chelsea Market Passage between 16th & 17th Streets.*
