Imagined Spaces, Imagined Lives
June 5th, 6th and 7th and June 26th, 27th and 28th
This June, The Manual Archives will present “Imagined Spaces, Imagined Lives,” a series of collaborations between architects and puppet theater artists. Dream citizens will inhabit impossible inventions as all practical considerations are dispensed with and all hallucinations are entertained. Artists are invited to modify the premises, conduct architectural interventions, utilize the rooftop, the proscenium stage, and the storefront window.
