After Hours is a series of ephemeral installations and performances hidden amongst the Times Square district’s diverse venues, recorded for radio and video dissemination. The Spring 2013 series takes place once a month across four unique locations.
Taking advantage of the twilight moment before midnight, and a surreal array of different settings nestled throughout the Times Square area, the Times Square Alliance and the Clocktower Gallery & ARTonAIR.org come together to offer tantalizing glimpses of these spaces as creative catalysts. Pairing musicians and artists with each of these unique contexts, the artists create work specifically designed to draw on the neighborhood's history as a social and artistic melting pot. The fleeting nature of these late night experiences highlights the power found in taking the synchronicity and spontaneity of an After Hours encounter beneath the bright lights, and using it to inspire and indicate future audio, video, and performance work. After Hours will happen once a month in April, May, June and July 2013 in partnership with the Clocktower Gallery & ARTonAIR.org. Each event is limited capacity, and invitation only. Please sign up HERE to receive an invite.
Curated by the Clocktower Gallery & ARTonAIR.org in partnership with Times Square Arts. Curatorial Committee: Alanna Heiss, Joe Ahearn, Beatrice Johnson, Jim Toth, Tim Goossens. ARTonAIR Livestream and Broadcast: David Weinstein and Jeannie Hopper.
