SATURDAY, JUNE 30
MATTHEW SILVER 7:00 – 8:00 PM
I work for the UNIVERSE. I’m on a spiritual journey to make the entire world LAUGH at NOTHING. We all need people! And people need us! Seeing people laugh is what makes me happy and is my dream. My goal is to only make more people laugh. And one day, the entire planet. Matthew Silver gets most of his experience performing on the street where he performs for tips as a clown/village idiot. He's been spotted at the Astor Place Cube, Union Square, Washington Square Park, and the subway L-line. He has also performed at local bushwick venues, Goodbye Blue Mondays, and Cafe Orwell.
ADAM ROSE “NEMESIS” 8:00 – 9:00
An alien spaceship lands in a cornfield in Iowa. This is the overhyped expectation that we collectively hold for the year 2012. But this same scenario already happened a long time ago. The aliens are us, and the spaceship is Iowa.
Adam Rose is the Artistic Director of Antibody Corporation, a non-profit organization specializing in movement arts and occult research. He is a graduate of Antioch College (2008), where he earned a B.A. in Dance/Theater. He has shown work at many venues in Chicago including High Concept Laboratories, Defibrillator Performance Art Gallery,the 1901 Gallery/Theatre, Praxis Place, and in Mexico at the Festival de TeatroSusana Alexander.

ABOUT GRACE EXHIBITION SPACE
Grace Exhibition Space, since 2006, is devoted exclusively to Performance Art. We offer an opportunity to experience visceral and challenging performance works by the current generation of international performance artists, whether emerging, mid career or established.
Being a Brooklyn loft, our events are presented on the floor, not on a stage, dissolving the boundary between artist and viewer. This is how performance art is meant to be experienced and
our mission is the glorification of performance art.
