Monkey Town 3, where you enter a huge cube displaying art films and eat a scrumptious meal there. It’s going on until August 11.
This all began as a fly-by-night art installation in circa-2003 Williamsburg (the salad days). Then it got reignited in another Burg spot until 2010. Now it’s here for a two-month pop-up. Which means you, being fed, while two hours of audio-visual stimulation—from artists you’ll read about 50 years from now—is projected 360 degrees around you.
Two seatings of 32 people a night. That’s your window of opportunity. So bring someone—anyone—who can talk Miranda July shorts with you. Grab some advance tickets, show up, duck under the bottom of a suspended projector cube and start eating multiple courses of duck breast mole from a Pulqueria chef or roasted lamb from a Roberta’s vet. While art happens.
What you’re in for, visually: honestly, your guess is as good as ours. Probably some hectically panned clotheslessness. Maybe a stop-motion Venus flytrap or two.
