Tonight’s agenda: a one-hour play aboard the floating sculptures sponsored by the much-loved, Swoon, as part of her “Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea” project. As you may recall, the Going Places (Doing Stuff) tour paid a brief visit to the docked pieces upstate for a sneak peek a couple weekends ago – which was, to say the least, a pleasant surprise since we didn’t know where were headed on the tour (a k a the point of it all). The project will make its way along the Hudson River and open at Deitch Studios in Long Island City, Queens on Sept. 7th.

 

Tonight:

Riverside Park Pier 1, 70th St. and Hudson River

8pm, FREE

One of my favorite photogs is having his first solo opening tonight at the Cinders Gallery in Williamsburg. He documented possibly the most innovative arts & crafts movement of modern day Lost Boys & Girls: last year, a group of artists from every nook & cranny around the country got together to assemble a raft made out of garbage & scraps. The raft made its way down the Mississippi and the project was dubbed The Miss Rockaway Armada.

Tod Seelie (a k a Suckapants) was there to capture it all.
