SHARE @ the Issue Project Room

Lazaro Valiente at SHARE, hosted by Issue Project Room

After the Cinema 16 event last Sunday, we followed Lazaro Valiente across from the Bell House to the Issue Project Room, where an all night audio / visual jam was happening. I still had about 20 minutes of tape, so we let it roll. The program is called SHARE, and it happens every Sunday night at 8pm. It was one of the coolest things I have ever stumbled upon. We hung out until about 1 am, but I was beat. I have no idea how late they actually go. Here is SHARE's official blurb:

SHARE is first and foremost a platform to explore expression, in a variety of artforms. Through its weekly open jam sessions, SHARE.nyc engages its participants and spectators in a continually changing dialog on art and culture. Share is an open jam, not just for digirati, but for all new culture lovers. Participants bring their portable equipment, plug into our system, improvise on each others’ signal and perform live audio and video. We furnish the amplification and projection. Share happens every Sunday.
