Prelude Series No. 1: Antarctica (Show Added)
See, we told you Antarctica was a big deal—the show filled up so fast over the weekend that another show was added for tonight and you should probably go get your tickets online right now. Tonight’s event also features an artist talk at 7pm.
Public Functionary’s Prelude Series showcases performances and events showcasing site-specific art that will all lead up to the 2014 schedule for Public Functionary, which often features some of the best work in the Twin Cities. The series opens with Antarctica, a multi-media experience featuring live music, multiple video projections, light and tactile installations, dance performances and more. It’s all taking place in a bright white, somewhat organic cave-like creation within the gallery space (the Antarctica label really fits, it’s pretty amazing), and the performance piece itself was created and will be performed live by Chris Strouth and his band Paris1919. It’s a sensory experience that will really set the standard for any immersive art pieces you see for the rest of the year. 10 p.m. $8 (presale) $10 (at the door). —Eric D. Johnson
