8:00 – 10:00 PM
The inaugural Nomadic Night took place at the home of Veronica Gonzalez, a Jorge Pardo-designed structure that was “exhibited” by the Museum of Contemporary Art for five weeks in 1998.
The evening featured a series of performances and readings, the location of the action rotating throughout the home to create a sort of “orchestral sense”:
Scoli Acosta performed Levitating of the Pentagon: Infrathin Blake-ian Presence in Three-parts.
Ben Ehrenreich read a short piece about the moon entitled The Sky Goes Dark 12 Times a Year.
Matt Greene read a text conceived as a dialogue between a cross dressing alchemist and his inner feminist critic, or vice versa.
Jed Ochmanek and helpers employed unused baking molds, given to Piero Golia for his wedding, to make concrete cakes.
Alexis Teplin read an excerpt from Rachel Kushner’s first play: The Party.
