Sliding N2

As the second performance event in conjunction with our current exhibit Slide Slide Slide, Microscope has invited Bradley Eros to assemble part 2 of “Sliding”, a very memorable expanded slide projection night he organized last year at the gallery. Sliding N2 features slide variations in solo, pairings and group projections by Lary 7, Katherine Bauer, Lea Bertucci, Bradley Eros, Tim Geraghty, Sarah Halpern, Rose Kallal, Victoria Keddie, Joel Schlemowitz, and the Optipus collective. All works in Sliding N2 are accompanied by sound in contrast to the silent works currently on exhibit.
