Since 2006, Neal Medlyn has been creating a seven-show performance series in which each piece is built around a pop star or iconic group, from Lionel Richie and Miley Cyrus to the Insane Clown Posse. The Finale of this series, “King,” is built around Michael Jackson ― containing radically rethought versions of his music, intuitively-related source material in sculpture and costume, as well as considerations of Medlyn’s personal and artistic trajectory of the past several years.

October 25 – December 1
Opening: October 25, 6-8PM
89 Eldridge Street
For Daily Chores, Paul Gabrielli has made a series of deconstructionist sculptures, each composed of “everyday objects” that are themselves in fact a characteristic combination of altered, manipulated, and meticulous hand-made elements.
