Swiss Institute announces the third event in the Lunar Intervals series, Jibade-Khalil Huffman’s NIGHTSCHOOL/SCHOOLNIGHT.
Part of Swiss Institute’s OFFSITE program, each Lunar Interval event takes place in a different location in Lower Manhattan, in the lead-up to Swiss Institute’s move to 38 St Marks Pl in the East Village. Drawing a connection with cycles and orbits, each takes place during a different phase of the lunar cycle, from the waxing crescent to the new moon. Each will be also followed by the publication of a 7-inch record.
Please RSVP to email@example.com.

Please note, this performance will be filmed.
