Tribeca Neighborhood, New York, New York, May 12, 2017.
Parade ran approximately 40 min.
A wanderer’s sanctuary resides in memory. This New Orleans-style parade featured a menagerie of the artist’s most cherished buildings from across the globe. Performers, participants, and a marching band from disparate communities were chosen for their significance in the artist’s life. Parading began at the Hudson waterfront in New York City and proceeded through Tribeca before culminating in a gallery where the house hats danced to respective installation spots one-by-one. Each building was paired in display with a story explaining its significance. By turning architectural memory into a mask, the procession carried a peripatetic reality of home.
