The Incoherents Salon

A Misen-en-scene by Pablo Helguera and Dannielle Tegeder

Inspired by the French artistic movement, Les Arts Incoherents, the Hunter East Harlem Gallery has been transformed into a cross between a cabaret and a salon, inviting the community to put on their own show – get creative, socially engage the way it was done during the over ten years artists and writers, who made up the Montmartre artists collective, did in Paris between 1882 and 1895.

Organized by Arden Sherman, Curator, Hunter East Harlem Gallery, The Incoherents Salon will be on view to June 3, 2017. Lots of associated programming, from a performance by the Brazilian collective, OPAVIVARA!, in collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum, to the “Talk Hole” Comedy Open Mic Night, a comedy performance borrowing themes of satire from The Incoherents.

Hunter East Harlem Gallery is located at 2180 Third Avenue, at 119th Street, inside the Silberman School of Social Work.
