Opening Reception for “Under Construction” & “Living Room Index and Pool” at Pioneer Works

Mar 13, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


What: Opening Reception for the photo exhibition Under Construction: New Positions in American Photography & the installation and dance performance Living Room Index and Pool.

Where: Pioneer Works, Center for Art and Innovation
159 Pioneer Street
Red Hook, Brooklyn 11231

When: Friday, March 13 from 6:00 – 9:00 PM

What: Two simultaneous events, one great evening.

Pioneer Works Center for Art and Innovation and Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam present Under Construction – New Positions in American Photography, a group exhibition featuring ten young American and Canadian photographers. Individually the artists’ works are varied and diverse, but collectively they are explicitly engaged in a fundamental reassessment of the value and significance of photography in the early 21st century.

This exhibition will be on view at Pioneer Works March 14 – April 26, 2015.

Taking place alongside the Under Construction exhibit will be the premier of Living Room Index and Pool, an installation and performance by Lauren Bakst and Yuri Masnyj (both 2014-16 Open Sessions Artists at The Drawing Center). The installation takes its cues from construction sites, furniture design and architecture, which serves as context for a series of performances by Bakst and fellow dancer Emma Geisdorf exploring the ways that rooms and their objects create containers of affective experience.

Following the premier, the exhibition will be on view until April 26, 2015 with a series of scheduled performances:

Friday March 13, 2015: 7 and 8pm
Sunday March 22, 2015: 3pm and 4pm
Sunday April 5, 2015: 3pm and 4pm
Second Sunday: April 12, 2015 6-8pm
Sunday April 19, 2015: 3pm and 4pm
