Tamy Ben-Tor


Thursday, February 1, 2018
8 – 9:30 pm
Exhibition Galleries

A chaotic collection of contemporary social axioms is chewed up and vomited out in this new performance, part of a longtime collaboration between artists Tamy Ben-Tor and Miki Carmi. Using readymade plastic masks, fabrics and other props, these creatures become grotesque life size puppets, performing a dance of vanity as they spout ideas which have been legitimized and institutionalized—shedding new light upon the idea of “normal.”

This event is now at capacity. If you have any questions, please call 212.423.2337.

Please note this performance contains strong language and violent imagery that may be disturbing to some audiences.
