Dates: August 25-26, 2012 Location: Rockaway Beach Dillon de Give's Long Walks on the Beach provides a framework to literally enact a cliché with a stranger. This is the first in a seasonal series of dual stranger walks in affiliation with The Walk Exchange and Flux Factory, as part of Flux's upcoming Fall 2013 exhibition, Untitled (As of Yet).
Postponed! Rain Date: September 18, 6 pm – note the time change!
August 28, 6 pm – Procession for Immediate Certainty
Location: Pier 26, Chelsea Piers at 24th Street
(note the time change and rain date!)
Artist and boat-builder Jessica Segall will conduct the Procession for Immediate Certainty, a parade during which her handmade Norwegian faering will be carried across Manhattan along 23rd Street, with live music by the Raya Brass Band. The procession will end with a launch into the East River in the style of a Viking funeral. The vessel will then sail on to Queens, to be accompanied by the release of sky lanterns over the river.
We’re looking for strong hands to carry the boat, but anyone can join us to watch – come wearing blue!
