Opening Saturday, February 24th, from 4PM - 6PM
Join us for a live performance by Naoki Nakatani in collaboration with Sophie Leddick, in response to Minami Kobayashi’s current exhibition “A Park at Lunar Surface” at Goldfinch. Titled “Sorry, the local train runs too slow. I’d rather drive miles with the radio show that talks,” 2019, this approximately 17 minute long performance draws on the imagery and sensibility of Kobayashi’s current body of work.
**Please note: Goldfinch gallery hours on Sunday, February 24 are from 4-6pm only. The performance will begin at 4:15, and will be followed by a closing reception for our concurrent exhibitions by Minami Kobayashi and Chanel Chiffon Thomas, lasting until 6pm.
