November 05, 2014 from 3-6pm
with Erik Hagoort, Kirsten Leenaars, Jaxon Pallas, Caroline Picard, & Tricia Van Eck⬥
For three hours on the afternoon of November 5th, five artist practitioners meet at Sector 2337 to rehearse an improvisatory conversation about empathy and art. This effort is in one sense a public rehearsal, in another a collaborative form of research in the mechanics of discussion. In this “ear-to-ear encounter” participants must observe only two conditions: no questions are to be demanded, and no answers are to be supplied. The public is welcome to attend this rehearsal for as long or as little as it likes. When the gallery closes at 6pm, Erik Hagoort, Kirsten Leenaars, Jaxon Pallas, Caroline Picard, and Tricia Van Eck will create and record the final piece privately, behind closed doors; the result of that recording will later be distributed via digital recording, and only then become accessible to the public.
