InterMission V seeks interested players to participate in a public performance / installation on Friday, January 15, 2010 at the Adobe Bookshop Storefronts on 16th Street in the Mission, SF beginning at 6pm. SIMPLY COME ON BY TO PARTICIPATE!
PLAY by the RULES is the fifth of six InterMissions and is created by artist Mimi Moncier in collaboration with architect Alan Lewis as part of the Adobe Parlor Projects (curated by Devon Bella). PLAY by the RULES will be a performance / installation that will occur in one evening where the participants will play the card game War as the space around them is being consumed by card constructions of their own making. The object of the performance is to finish the game of War before the war for space engulfs the Play. InterMissions are short intermittent events in and around the window areas that challenge our cultural notions of display, exhibition and social activity. Thematically, each will refer to the production of space as an ongoing and ever-changing activity within which we are all participating. PLAY by the RULES will specifically examine the sometimes arbitrary nature of alliances as they are made and broken through time.
