To accompany SHOW ROOM’s fourth exhibition in Gowanus, Leah Singer's Impressions, the gallery presents a sound and image performance by Mikael Levin and Jean-Philippe Antoine. The show will merge video work by Levin with the electronic music of Jean-Philippe Antoine. The display will feature a screening of Guinée portugaise and Inside Looking In, moving seamlessly between the video works and live soundtrack. The show will begin at 7:30 PM.
