For your protection and the protection of others, you may be asked to wear a surgical mask.

I’m Garret Lynch (IRL)
A performance by Garrett Lynch.
The performance continues ideas of the artist, identity and being from the works “Between Saying and Doing” and “On Exactitude of Similitude”. The artist, wearing his now usual sandwich board, generates two hundred visually identical sandwich boards for participants to wear while all but taking control of the chat window to focus discussion on topics including identity, location, representation, original and copy, ‘reality’ and fiction.

Piano Drop
Man Michinaga/Patrick Lichty
A performance by Man Michinaga/Patrick Lichty. “The Hansen-Ono Piano Method”, is an extension of Al Hansen’s historic FLUXUS work “Yoko Ono Piano Drop”, in which Al Hansen dropped a piano off of a building as an action for his colleague, Yoko Ono. In this action, Lichty’s avatar (Man Michinaga) sits at the piano, while rains of pianos, anvils, sheep, and other whatnot rain down with cacaphanous results.
