The City is Asleep and Dreaming
Investigations of public space by Evelyne Leblanc-Roberge and Jason Bernagozzi
Exhibition Date: Friday, October 5th 7-10pm
Beginning Location: Rochester Contemporary Art Center at 137 East Ave., Rochester, NY.
The City is Asleep and Dreaming is a series of site-specific print and electronic media installations designed to help develop a public dialogue about the transitioning identity of the city of Rochester and provoke a re-imagination of what public space is and what it could be. The artworks for the October event are installed for one night only at diverse locations downtown. The location of each work will be revealed through a series of clues that will lead the viewer through a dérive that links each of the works. The first clue will be located at the entrance of the Rochester Contemporary Art Center at 137 East Ave., Rochester, NY.
Artists/instigators: Jason Bernagozzi & Evelyne Leblanc-Roberge
