BUREAU OF LINGUISTICAL REALITY, FIELD OFFICE
by Alicia Escott and Heidi Quante
2:00 -4:00 pm
The Bureau of Linguistical Reality is a public participatory artwork by Alicia Escott and Heidi Quante focused on creating new language as an innovative way to better understand our rapidly changing world due to manmade climate change and other Anthropocenic events. Asking the questions of who has the agency to define the world around us— and the words we use to talk about it, The Bureau creates a platform for people to identify feelings and experiences they do not have the language to describe and together coin neologisms to better discuss these.
ATTACK OF THE TYPEWRITERS
by Hiya Swanhuyser
2:00-5pm (Free and open to the public)
We bring the typewriters—you bring the rage. Writing to your reps is easier when you’re not alone. Grab a drink and tell the President (or any politician) what’s on your mind. You can write about anything you want, and we’ll have a sample letter or two in case you’re not sure what to write about. There is nothing more satisfying than airing your grievances than on a typewriter—trust us. Exercise your right!
WALL OF SONG
Mel Day and Michael Namkung
Artists Mel Day and Michael Namkung are building a different kind of wall—a Wall of Song. The artists invite you to record video singing singing Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’, adding your voice to an ever-expanding composite of hundreds of others. In this special installation, Day will bring her Westfalia camper van to the gallery as a mobile recording studio. wallofsongproject.com.
