Theaster Gates' See, Sit, Sup, Sip, Sing: Holding Court (2012) is an installation created from tables, chairs and desks salvaged from a now-closed public school on Chicago’s South Side. Gates will be present in the The Studio Museum in Harlem's atrium for a special activation of the work by the artist himself. Designed as an experience for learning created by the people assembled in and around it, the installation will be a site for engaged conversation and dynamic interaction.
The performance is part of 'Radical Presence: Black Performance in Contemporary Art' at the Grey Art Gallery, NYU (10 September – 7 December 2013) and The Studio Museum in Harlem (14 November 2013 – 9 March 2014).
