public / private: an immersive experience

This in-person event lasts approximately 30 minutes with reservations available every half hour. It will take place at Ace Hotel Brooklyn: 252 Schermerhorn St., Brooklyn, NY 11217.


NEW INC and Ace Hotel Brooklyn present: public / private, an immersive experience by Brandon Powers with Sadah Espii Proctor. public / private steers the choreography of movement through space. With nothing but a set of headphones and each other, guests will navigate Ace Hotel Brooklyn in small groups relying only on audio as their guide.

Emerging from months of seclusion in our homes, distanced from each other, we now have to renegotiate and reimagine how we gather as bodies in physical space. Further, the dichotomy of public versus private has grown starker, shaping how we hold and move our bodies in the two contexts. A hotel offers a nuanced place to investigate these shifts as it is a convergence of the public and private.

About the partnership

The New Museum and NEW INC team up with Ace Hotel Brooklyn and Ace Hotel New York for an eight-part series that animates a shared interest in discovery and a mutual commitment to artistic pursuits. The yearlong lineup will activate the hotels with co-curated pop-ups, artist conversations, screenings, and more.
