Anxious Spaces: Installation as Catalyst, including DESI SANTIAGO who is having a Jerome Foundation residency at The Clocktower. Curated by Alanna Heiss and Joe Ahearn
A group exhibition in which six installation artists engage a space beckoning with desire and opportunity. Knockdown Center’s cathedral-like complex, with its breathtaking expanse, mysterious sub-chambers, surprise annexes, and hidden pockets, is a dream environment for site-specific and installation art. In addition, these works incorporate dynamic and time-based elements ranging from robotic interactivity to performance events to social intervention. Taken together, the architecture and the artworks transform the space into a surreal bazaar of curiosities for the adventurous.
