The Bronx Blue Bedroom

Visitors to the Bronx Blue Bedroom become part of the act. Experience appearance and disappearance, open and closed doors, and the enduring vision of the Bronx Blue Bedroom Project.

Laura Napier’s artwork is often participatory in nature, with a focus on photography, video, surveillance, and performance. This is a site specific installation working directly with the social and physical spaces of the Bronx Blue Bedroom Project.

EVENT

Stranger than Fiction


Dates:
Sat Apr 04, 2009 00:00 - Sat Mar 28, 2009

Saturday April 4, 5pm at the Synthetic Zero Art Space

presentations and work by
Yasmine Alwan, Sergio Bessa, Melissa A Calderón, Ethan Ham, Jane Hsu, Edwin Torres and Spanic Attack, and Angie Waller

curated by Laura Napier

The movie Stranger than Fiction is about an author who is literally writing a real person's life as it happens. The event Stranger than Fiction features interdisciplinary art and literary work that fictionalizes: it follows the lives of strangers, disorients while browsing the internet, uses social networks in ways not originally intended, refers to new schools of thought, and is cryptically dispensed and dispersed. The installation of Stranger than Fiction is artifacts and archives related to the event: a networked computer, video, photographs, signage, a manuscript, clothing, supplemental books, and a comfy couch.

sneaky preview: Wednesday, April 1, 5-9pm (for the Bronx Culture Trolley)
presentations: Saturday, April 4, 5pm
viewing by appointment only through April 23. Please call 646.220.0716
