“Open Pole” began a series of pole-dancing classes and practice sessions that took place in the Fifth Floor Gallery as part of Gerard & Kelly’s research for “P.O.L.E. (People, Objects, Language, Exchange).” Coinciding with the Museum’s weekly Pay-What-You-Wish Thursday evenings, Gerard & Kelly will continue to stage “Open Pole” on Thursday February 5 and Thursday February 12, from 7 to 9 p.m. The last two installments of “Open Pole” feature two crews of dancers who perform on the poles in New York City subways—the Chosen Ones and We Live This—in an open-mic-style, improvisatory event that will be conducted in the installation.
