Sound Art Limo
An AC Institute Project
Curated by Holly Crawford

Rest your eyes. Open your ears. Listen to art!

A limousine as an experiment space for art by AC Institute. This year as experimental space for sound art! Last year the space was a movable salon that was hosted by museum directors, curators, and critics.

This year in the darkness of February a limo will zip around Manhattan for a half hour.
Twenty-four different sound spaces will be created over the 3 days during the art fairs.

Some of the artists: Louise Lawler, John Baldessari, Nic Collins, Richard Kostelanetz, Lynne Tillman, Kiko Smith, David Linton, Paul Bowles, Eleanor Antin, Judy Fiskin, Mike Kelley, Martin Kersels, Jim Shaw, Alexis Smith, Jeffery Vallance, Joe Scanlan, Pia Lindman, Richard Hermann and China Blue, Orlan and Tanger, and many others.

Refreshments and conversations will also be on the menu.

When: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, February 23, 24, 25
Time: 3 pm and at 7pm. Take the ride on the hour or half hour.
Where: The Amory Art Fair, Pier 94, New York City.

On the serious subject: Censorship and power to control media flow is not just something that a government does. Many large corporations have this power, but so do individuals. On the simple level issues have you ever felt excluded! Censorship may be very subtle and seem trival. It is not!
