From Wednesday June 20 – Saturday, June 23, Winkel & Balktick are presenting Laboratory, a series of concerts, parties and other happenings at a vast former pharmaceutical factory in north Brooklyn. Several thousand guests are expected over the week. We are seeking creative and artistic priorities.
Please see these photos that help illustrate what our events are like.WHAT KINDS OF EXPERIMENTS ARE YOU CONDUCTING?
We are seeking installation & sculpture, media, video & light art, large sculpture, performance & interactive environments. We are very open minded about your project’s format, so as long as it is thematically relevant. All projects should fit within the theme of science, laboratories, technology, etc. Yes, we have a budget. (More details about that later.) The venue has about 18,000 square of open space and an additional 20 small (100 – 250 sq ft.) rooms. The open spaces are raw, clean and concrete. The small rooms are mostly empty, windowless and clinical. Ceiling heights range from 11’ – 14’. Most projects will be placed in their own small rooms. Note that the open spaces will often be in use for concerts, dancefloors, etc. If you’d like your work to be placed in the open spaces, it should play nicely with crowds and music.
