    This week from 5:00 - 6:00 pm is The Girls Room with DJ Lonesome (Jaclyn Arellano), DJ Filth (Mady Preece), DJ Duchamp’s Urinal (Carly Goldstein). In this political climate, it is finally time to take charge of our own bodies and image. No more housewife norms to determine what a woman should look like. Join us in conversation with the tools of music and noise to express what it means to be a woman. We will challenge the definitions and misconceptions about masculinity and femininity, creating a space where women can feel free to ask questions and get answers from other women.

  • Patterns Bigger Than Any of Us
    Jesse Fleming / Pat O
    'Neill

    A two-person exhibition of recent large-scale video installations from Los Angeles-based artists Jesse Fleming and Pat O’Neill. Each artist raises questions in his work about the self in relation to others, collective norms, and the built environment. They direct us to see the links and fissures in our lives and the larger systems that we attempt to grapple with—from science to spirituality, and the spaces they straddle.

Impossible Measures
Anna Craycroft in conversation with artist and curator Micah Silver. In conjunction with the current exhibition Anna Craycroft: Tuning the Room


Art can be thought of productively as about learning ... and in this frame the material of art is not sound, not paint, not objects, but the schematic play we perform (with body, attention, our entirety) in order to absorb the work.

                                                - quote from Silver’s book Figures in Air

This event will address the fearlessness of open-ended listening.  In a time of "alternative facts" where measures of reality have gone askew, our own subjectivity is urgently needed to build a world rooted in trust and possibility. Micah Silver and Anna Craycroft will make social and acoustic experiments that explore the ineffable qualities of sound and audio. Visitors will be invited to join in these activities and discussions. Together we will reflect on how we move through the air, tuning our attention and imaginations to acoustic energies of the space and one another. We will think about how little we, amateurs and professionals alike, can adequately describe and quantify these observations. Liberated by the inexactness of measure and the evidential truth of witness, we will play with the different meanings we can extract from them.


Snacks and beverages will be provided by Eden Batki that draw awareness to taste and digestion, mirroring the exhibition's attention to the sensory perception of acoustics and optics.
