In conjunction with the current show Perverts, Cell Project Space will host an evening of performances and readings by Alex Baczynski-Jenkins, Zuzanna Bartoszek and Juliana Huxtable on May 18th.
At various times over the duration of the evening, Baczynski-Jenkins’ choreography “Federico” (2015) will be performed throughout the gallery. The piece choreographs touching hands between two performers (Nick Finegan and Owen Ridley-DeMonick).
Zuzanna Bartoszek and Juliana Huxtable will separately present a performative reading addressing the show's content from their most recent work.
