“Single” – is a curated art exhibition and an evening of readings, performance and stand-up comedy that delve into the experience of being single. The event will also feature Single Postal Service, drinks and a DJ after-party.
In the recent decades building a life as a single person has become more common. However there still exists a prevailing notion that one day we will all meet that special someone and settle down for a happily-ever-after. This event is not about that. Twenty artists of various age groups and backgrounds, based in New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Maine, Oklahoma and Winnipeg, Canada, consider the width and depth of living as an independent entity. Whether it’s longing for love, looking deeper into the self or exploring sexuality.
Single or not – come out bring your friends!
Opening February 14, 6pm at Local Project Art Space, 11-27 44th Road
“Single” is curated by Maria Dimanshtein (a Brooklyn/Queens-based artist-curator) in conjunction with Local Project, an art organization dedicated to providing opportunities of growth and engagement for the artists as well as community.
