For the Love of Art at Galapagos Art Space

Post Author: , Nate Dorr

Halfway between a vaudeville review and 60s art house trip, For the Love of Art jammed over twenty performers and numerous installation pieces into five hours, with roving dance routines and “singing telegrams” circulating through the newly christened Dumbo version of the old Williamsburg haunt.

The new space carries over the reflecting pool found at the entrance of the original location, this time placing it between the audience and the stage, to literally forge a moat as a fourth wall. Some, like the live synthesizer-synthesizing Loud Objects and dancer Sarah Adina Smith, waded through the pools in a quiet attempt to relieve this pressure on the packed, milling crowd.
