As you may have heard, Jennifer Dalton and I are collaborating on a project called MONTH2MONTH, taking place in two private apartments, one “luxury” housing setting and one “affordable” apartment. Four nights a week for the month of May we will be hosting events, performances and discussions in the apartments on the themes of housing affordability, inequality, race, class, private property, gentrification, displacement, and other reasons living is precarious in NYC. We also held a public lottery for people to stay for free in each of the apartments for 4 days at a time. We are asking the winners to participate in the two events that happen during their stay in the apartments. So it’s sort of like an art residency, and sort of like an Air bnb, and sort of like pandas at the zoo (the events will all be livestreamed).
In order to present a broad a range of events from serious discussions to satirical or uncomfortable performances to other things we haven’t yet imagined, we are currently soliciting proposals for events in these apartments through an open call. Please send us ideas if there’s something you’d like to do, and/or share this with anyone else you know who may be interested in participating.
Events should be no longer than 90 minutes in duration and will take place May 28 through 31 (Memorial Day Weekend) between 6-8pm.
William and Jennifer
