Breakfast Mix: An Edgy Long Table

Bagels, art, politics and conversation

Thursday, June 9: 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM in Abrons Gallery
Free Event: Reservations—

A festival tradition, observe and/or converse with “edgy” artists on how Canadian and American economic/political contexts influence creative practices and production, as you assess who makes the best bagel: Montreal or New York? Plus a special work-in-progress presentation by Montreal-based artists Dany Desjardins (contemporary dance) and Andreane Leclerc (experimental circus).

The Long Table is a “public forum that is a hybrid performance-installation-roundtable-discussion-dinner party designed to facilitate dialogue through the gathering together of people with common interests” developed by Lois Weaver. The Long Table questions ingrained institutional boundaries, while providing a democratic forum for intimate exchange. Anyone seated at the table is a guest performer. An unlimited amount of observers may gather around the table.  To participate, take an empty seat at the table, or if the table is full, request a seat. Read more about the Long Table (PDF).

This event is hosted by the Quebec Cultural Services in New York.
