- When All Through The House
- December 12 – 13, 2009
Parlour is pleased to present its eleventh exhibition, When All Through the House, which features short video works by eleven contemporary artists selected from the open call that Parlour hosted this autumn. The show’s title invokes the first couple of lines from Clement Clarke Moore’s The Night Before Christmas: “Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house/ Not a Creature was stirring, not even a mouse.” In Parlour’s rendition, however, everything is stirring; The works will be installed throughout an old, ivy-covered mansion, pervading the space and creating a dynamic experience for the viewer. Featured artists include: Colleen Asper, Orit Ben-Shirit, Filipe Bessa, Amanda Friedman, Elizabeth Hirsch, Harold Moss, Matthew Newton, Lars Ramussen, Adam Shecter, Mary-Ruth Walsh and Simon Woolham. Parlour No. 11 is hosted in Bushwich by Cedar House, a group of nine renaissance men and women who work in various creative industries.
- Between The Acts
- November 21 – 22, 2009
Parlour No. 10, Between The Acts, is curated by Jennifer Dudley and features the work of Lara Allen, Timothy Hull, Selena Kimball, Mary Reid Kelley, Jessica Slaven, Spirit Tours and Steven Thompson. The works presented in this evening of domestic theater pause on the threshold between deception and revelation by performing transformative illusions, while simultaneously conceding the methods by which those illusions are sustained. Messages from the past are transmitted, the future is divined, secrets are confessed, and perceptions are contradicted as the viewer is cast as both participant and spectator.
Between The Acts will be hosted by Megha Gupta, Alison Duffy and Robert Rhee in their Brooklyn home.
