Please note that participation is extremely limited and scheduling is on a first come, first served basis.  RSVP is essential by Saturday, July 6 before 6:00 PM
In conjunction with his current exhibition at Blum & Poe, Julian Hoeber has arranged for a series of brief participatory performances, held inside his installation
Self-Consciousness Machine.  
Hoeber's work, inspired in part by a therapist's office, will become the environment for these one-on-one interactive performances.  For a single day only, Jennifer L. Collins, MSW, a practicing psychotherapist and clinical social worker, will be meeting with visitors inside the installation.  Each viewer will participate in a direct conversation with Ms. Collins while seated at the center of Hoeber's Self-Consciousness Machine
Though the conversation is not a therapy session, certain aspects of the therapy process will be represented and elucidated through the performance.  With the help of Ms. Collins, the architecture of the piece will create a heightened and altered experience of self-examination.
In addition to working in the field of mental health, Ms. Collins has a background in theater and performance.  In the past she has performed in videos by Hoeber and Paul McCarthy, among others.  This is the first collaboration in nearly a decade between Ms. Collins and Hoeber.
Performances are 25 minutes long and are by appointment only.  Available times are as follows:
Tuesday, July 9:
