BAX is delighted to host The EmergeLAB@BAX which is comprised of alum of the EmergeNYC program at the Hemispheric Institute for Performance and Politics. The goal of the LAB is to provide a non-curated, non-hierarchical space for artistic development, where the artists determine their own frameworks and processes for experimentation and growth.

Memory Foam is a collection of pieces made by performer and designer pairs where the body's look is deeply considered. It's about making a you-shaped imprint to sleep inside of.  And by sleep, I mean be the star of a million self-authored dreams you won't know how to remember when you wake up.

CANADIANS ARE MEAN

curated by MELANIE JONES (2013/15 BAX Artist In Residence)

featuring Cagey Productions, Tanya Marquardt

Friday, October 31 @ 8:00 pm

Saturday, November 1 @ 8:00 pm  

Tickets: $16 General | $10 Low-Income 

  

CANADIANS ARE MEAN confronts stereotype and the (in)visibility of Canadian artists in NYC. Are Canadians really polite? Is the Great White North truly a socialist utopia? You don't care, you're American. And you probably thought these artists were, too. An evening of good old-fashioned immigrant angst, alienation and small-country syndrome.
