Rafael Lozano-Hemmer & Rahzel @ Bitforms Gallery

On Sept 6th, 2012, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer opened his exhibition at Bitforms Gallery featuring the United States premiere of two projects: “Voice Array”, and “Last Breath.”

The exhibition’s opening featured a performance by legendary vocal percussionist Rahzel who explored Lozano-Hemmer’s “Voice Array” within the musical context of human beatboxing. I co-produced this collaboration with Laura Blereau, Director of Bitforms Gallery.

Event: Invisible Dogs with Improv Everywhere

YouTube Preview Image

In October of 2009, I initiated and co-organized a massive 2,000+ person “mission” with Charlie Todd and his legendary organization, ImprovEverywhere. This incredibly humorous collaborative stunt helped to celebrate the grand opening of The Invisible Dog Art Center along with No Longer Emtpy‘s exhibition entitled “Something Out of Nothing”. The resulting online video, which can be seen above this text, has been viewed more than 3,000,000 times.

The Invisible Dog Art Center is located at 51 bergen street, Brooklyn, NY
