Free and open to the public.
A meditation on architecture, sequence, and collage, artist Alan Martín Segal’s Activations program Eventually everything becomes a melody presents short films of the Chelsea Recreation Center created by its own members. The screening is the culmination of a collaborative process in which members captured footage of the center in response to creative prompts, then participated in an editing salon to transform the collective footage into kaleidoscopic video portraits.
Activations is a series of interdisciplinary public workshops designed by artists in response to civic spaces in New York City. Each activation invites participants to encounter a readymade site through the lens of an artistic practice, reimagining it as a space of creative possibility. All are welcome to participate.
