For Immediate Release
September 30th, 2013.
New York, Project For Empty Space, NYC, and Solo(s) Project House, NJ, are pleased to announce the opening of Etiquette For Lucid Dreaming, a group exhibition in The Gateway II, in Newark, NJ, Pennsylvania Station. The exhibition will open on October 11th and continue through December 21st. It will be open from 11am – 6pm Tuesday – Friday.
Etiquette For Lucid Dreaming (#E4LD) is an exhibition that explores collective and individual levels of consciousness. A defining characteristic of humanity, regardless of one’s individualism, is our various levels of cognitive awareness of intuitive thought. Though our ideas and actions may vary, at times opposing, we have a predisposed ability to formulate opinions and express these layers of our sub-conscious, be it through deliberate conversation or primal interaction. The exhibition aims to broach discourses around consciousness from many vantage points: it strives to be engaging as an intellectual and emotive experience.
Etiquette For Lucid Dreaming was inspired by it’s namesake year-long collaboration between Project For Empty Space and it’s Collective in Residence, The Other Theatre. The exhibition marks the culmination of this project and exploration of the ideas produced through the continued probing of the ideas presented by The Other Theatre.
