Performance Art-This Friday, November 6!

Come see and be a part of my new performance piece, "We Play (Slide Redux)", on Friday, November 6, starting at 6:30 pm at SOHO20 Gallery, 547 W. 27th Street (between 10th & 11th Aves), Suite 301. This performance is part of SOHO20's Savoir-Faire performance series. The performance is free and open to the public. Bring friends - lots of friends. Sweet treats and punch will be served.

From the gallery's press release:

"In 'We Play (Slide Redux)', artist Carla Hernandez recaptures childhood nostalgia through play. Blindfolded performers will entertain themselves in the gallery by playing 'Slide', a children's handclapping game, with each other while they wait for visitors in the gallery to join them in play. The game, which is not accompanied with a verbal rhyme, will develop into a social environment of rhythmic sound and activity as a multitude of players simultaneously clap to the game."
