As part of Gerard & Kelly’s project on the Fifth Floor, and in conversation with the Fall 2014 R&D Season thematic CHOREOGRAPHY, the public is invited to observe and participate in pole-dancing classes, practice sessions, and on occasion, hosted events. These “Open Pole” gatherings will occur during “Pay-What-You-Wish” Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. at the New Museum. Pole classes by invitation only will be held from 7–8:30 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to observe. From 8:30–9 p.m., the artists open up the floor and invite visitors to practice their pole skills.
