Thurs., Sept. 8. Prince Rama: Utupia = No Place
2011 Artist-in-Residence Prince Rama will transform ISSUE Project Room into a point of origins. He will construct a “sacred space” using gathered matter from off-site urban wilds of Brooklyn. Audience members will be invited to build their own instruments and utilize them in an extended jam session open to anyone who wishes to attend (regardless of musical skill). This aims to investigate the utopian symbology of “the jam session” as a poetic reenactment and microcosmic creation of an ideal democratic society. Cut off from the rest of the world, yet wholly imbedded within it, this ritual space becomes a no place.
Please bring along an instrument.
8 p.m., free, rsvp
