May Day 2012
We will celebrate a holiday for the 99%. We will come together across lines of race, class, gender, and religion and challenge the systems that create these divisions among us. New Yorkers will join with millions throughout the world — workers, students, immigrants, professionals, houseworkers — We will take to the streets to unite in a General Strike against a system which does not work for us. With our collective power we will begin to build the world we want to see. Another world is possible!
Social Hijinks! A screening and live action lecture night
Wednesday August 10, 7:30 pm
In conjunction with the exhibition Why Participate?, Angela Washko has organized a lineup of videos and live performative lectures by artists whose projects take place within social spaces. The works being presented and discussed are mischievous, critical, occasionally hilarious, and examine the boundaries of legality. Artists Jason Eppink, Nate Hill, Ann Hirsch, Jaime Iglehart, Action Club, Paolo Pedercini, and Jeff Stark present and talk about their works discussing surveillance, costumed public service, reality television, knock-off culture, collaboration, video game evolution, protest, and performance in public spaces.

Mutually Made is a network of people dedicated to making art and film the impassioned pursuit of their lives. The idea is to create an online community based on personal face to face relationships and connections. With artists spread across the country the mutually made online community provides a space where members can communicate and help promote each others projects. Taking from the old maxim “strength in numbers” individual mutually made artists share their support base, making it possible to reach much larger audiences.
