4. FLOW at The Bellewether
Installation by Philippe Halaburda
Untapped Cities Insiders got a first look at the first major installation inside The Bellewether, a new space run by The Vanderbilt Republic, the group responsible for producing creative and immersive experiences inside the Gowanus Loft. Inside The Bellewether, an 8,000 square foot raw space in midtown that was once an electrical repair company, visitors can now experience FlOW, a series of immersive installations curated by Creative Director and Executive Producer George Del Barrio. The exhibit, which is comprised of various pieces of art and performances, is presented as part of Circular City Week New York, a weeklong festival exploring the principles of circular economics. The pieces in the show were selected from applications to an open call which sought work that touched on the ideals of circular economics and contained a form of human expression. The experiences presented, which include a dance performance with dancers clad in “techno coccons,” video art, an interactive play and more were created by Cynthia Alberto, Inkyoung Bae and Chanan Ben Simone, Philippe Halaburda, Irene Mamiye, Sanem Odabasi, and University City Food Hub and Claudia Sohrens.
The show will run through March 10th.
