Rendered Cities
Public Program - NYC
Laura Yuile Performance of Unit #1, Maintenance #1

Saturday, February 10, 2018, 3:00 - 4:00 pm
291 Church Street, NYC

In conjunction with apexart's current exhibition Rendered Cities, Valentine Traverse and Jack Hogan activate the newly commissioned installation by artist Laura Yuile in a durational performance. The installation and performance examine how an Internet of Things and futuristic rendered interior home designs create a home space that is both public and private, and how idealized methods of living are advertised through narratives of wellness and wellbeing. Bodies will dissolve into their surroundings as figure and environment melt into one another. This event is free and open to the public. RSVP here.
