PS122 Season Launch by Kate Hess 5

Season Launch

Season Launch

September 5, 2012

“In previous episodes of this annual event, we’ve seen Dynasty Handbag, failed to see Praxis’s invisible tea, wounds, and substances (legal and illicit), we’ve had our portraits taken by Mark Mann, been heckled by neighbours and lauded by all. This year we’ll dwarf the Olympic opening in its ambition – and solemnly swear to under deliver on our over promises.” – Vallejo Gantner, PS122 Artistic Director

From start to finish the evening’s social convergence of artists, PS122 staff, and friends will be infused by singular performative and non-performative events of the unexpected, absurd, and often coy nature curated and featuring Get Modern on Me aka GMOM aka Neal Medlyn, Adrienne Truscott + friends.
