Today marks PRAXES’ first Parlor, in connection with the opening of the second module in Gerard Byrne’s cycle, entitled Older Works. Here, Byrne will give a talk along with PRAXES’ directors Rhea Dall and Kristine Siegel. Illustrative of the highly theatrical focus of Byrne’s practice, the second module sees the downstairs floor transformed, shrouded in darkness and illuminated with stage-lighting. Three artworks will be presented – a film, *ZAN -T185 r.1:
(Interview) v.1, no. 4 – v.2, no. 6, 19 (1969 -Feb. 1972); (Andy Warhol’s (Interview) v.2, no. 21 – v.3, no. 9, a new photograph that forms part of his ongoing Newsstand series, and finally a reconstruction of a 1961 prop by Alberto Giacometti for Beckett’s Waiting for Godot.
