3:00 PM to 4:30 PM
Join Interference Archive and the weird art people who hang out at the last street end in Gowanus for an (Un)block Party on October 23rd at 3pm at 2nd avenue and 5th street. During this encounter, we’ll be breaking out the mobile archive bike, printmaking designs made by our friends at Shoestring Press, swaying our hips to afternoon-noise-level music mixed by DJ j.lu, and socializing with living humans and non-humans. Bring your friends and your kids and your dog and your best dance moves. Festive attire encouraged.
This event is the third of a series of four encounters that involve transforming an ecologically disturbed and contested public space through different kinds of “use.” Documentation produced by participants during / through each of the encounters will be integrated into a land use intervention library.
This project is partially supported by a grant from Social Practice CUNY, an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-supported initiative.
