Eyes As Big As Plates

Long time Address contributor and this year’s Artist in Residence Riitta Ikonen along with Karoline Hjorth will be working on a new chapter in their ongoing collaborative series Eyes as Big as Plates as part of Recess’s signature program, Session, from February 15th until April 26th. Session invites artists to use Recess’s public space as studio, exhibition venue, and grounds for experimentation. Over the course of their Session, Ikonen and Hjorth will create costumes and photographs in collaboration with senior residents of New York who show a marked connection to their national and cultural roots. The resulting works will be on show in Redhook throughout the residency, with reception and presentation on March 22nd.

Performance & Reception: March 22, 6-8 pm.
Closing Reception: April 24, 6-8 pm.
