Long Table on Proximity in conjunction with Michel Groisman’s Various
The Long Table is an experimental public forum originally developed by performance artist Lois Weaver. The Long Table experiments with participation and public engagement by re-appropriating a dinner table atmosphere as a public forum, and encouraging informal conversations on serious topics. It is literally a very long table set up with chairs and refreshments where anyone and everyone is welcome to come to the table, ask questions, make statements, leave comments, or simply sit, listen and watch.
As part of his first US tour, Brazilian artist Michel Groisman brings two singular pieces and several interactive and intimate experiences for children and adults to the Invisible Dog Art Center in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn.
By devising wearable apparatuses and sculpting his body to test the endurance and nature of the solitary human form, Groisman’s soulful performances and investigative group experiences challenge preconceptions of performance and play on the values of confidence and exchange.

To be held 2 doors down from The Invisible Dog @ 61 Local, 61 Bergen Street Boerum Hill, Brooklyn.
