Featuring Installations by Kellen Niemeier

Lantern-Eyes, Light Houses: A Current Work is a painting in time, by definition, existing from when construction ceases until takedown. Striking the show transforms the work from Painting to a collection of artifacts. Lantern-Eyes Light Houses: A Current Work utilizes color theory and environmental design, activating individual minutia, to create an experience that invokes the notion that something’s not quite right. 

Performers:
Carolyn Gilliam, talks some dope shit.

Chris Hopkins-Ward, takes us on a journey through his on-film orgy experience while filming on set.

Nikolai Mishler, presenting songs from his new musical Oedipus on the Beach.

Ernest Rareberrg, hip hop performance.

Lou Perez, slinging stories from his post five year relationship lifestyle.

W E L L R E A D by boom theater

This summer, boom! teamed up with  rappers and performance artists Sir KN8 and Hila the Killa to produce "WELL READ"; a rap video about reading books. 

Here's what cool people are saying:
 

Pretext Social Club: "[Sir KN8] delv[es] into the fundamental essence of life like a poetic form of Stephen Hawking's A Brief History Of Time...For all who choose to actively listen and discern his casually spun, bopping words, the lyrics toss you down a paradoxical rabbit hole..."
 

American Pancake: "Sir Kn8 is a gentleman of the Universe's court...he is a prolific speaker inciting the youth to learn things they usually would not give a fuck about if it were not for his blessed delivery and inspiring ability to wrap words together like a balloon animal."
 

No Smoking Media: "KN8 deals in witticisms and smooth hybrid production with all the same swagger."
 

1.21 Gigiwatts: "[T]asty beats, fresh funk, wonky sounds, smells, cactus trees, pitch bends, pre-socratic philosophy, space aesthetically and cosmically…songs which are both surreal and relatable."

 
 
Watch the video and then crack a book.
