Featuring the work of ITP Professor, Marina Zurkow and curated by ITP Adjunct professor, Michael Connor.

Please join us Friday, Oct 22 from 8pm to 11pm for a party to celebrate the addition of two new works to the Marian Spore collection. (http://marianspore.com/)

Marina Zurkow’s new video work was commissioned for Marian Spore thanks to our generous community of supporters, who helped us achieve our fundraising goal this past summer. Part of Zurkow’s ‘Paradoxical Sleep’ series, the video installation offers an unsettling vision of Marian Spore and its environs submerged in languid floodwaters.

Luxembourg-based artist The Plug will present a new sculptural installation, ‘The Best Little Secrets Are Kept (Hooligan)’, in which cryptic symbols are punched into light-filled metal lockers. This work is made possible by the Ministry of Culture in Luxembourg.

There will also be a performance by Joyce Kim with Katharina Stenbeck and Greg Henits. The performance, which is based on Kim’s piece ‘Traces Blue VII‘, will take place at 9PM.

Drinks by donation.

Located in the burgeoning creative community of Industry City, Marian Spore (www.marianspore.com) is an art space curated by Michael Connor, that is formatted like a permanent collection. Periodically, new works are added to a slowly expanding exhibition. The collection currently includes work by Andy Graydon, Anna Lundh, Graham Parker, Joe Winter, Joyce Kim, Christopher Robbins, and Thom Kubli.
