Deborah Fisher & Paul Ramirez Jonas: "Something for Nothing" Performance I
Saturday, May 09 2015
1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
For this exhibition, Deborah Fisher and Paul Ramirez Jonas work as a collaborative team. The two artists, who have each produced participatory work in public spaces, combine their interests toward a work for the Old Bronx Borough Courthouse about service, art, and alchemy. A custom-designed neon sign signals the possibility of fortune telling, notary service, gold exchange, and coffee, all in a single action/interaction. The artists will activate the shop three times over the course of the exhibition, resulting in a personalized “hand-made” artwork created intimately with each participant.
