BLOOD* BY WHITNEY VANGRIN
121 ESSEX ST. 2ND FL. (BETWEEN RIVINGTON & DELANCEY)
ST. VALENTINE’S FEAST: 7-8pm
AFTER PARTY ALL NIGHT W/ SPECIAL GUESTS

For BLOOD, Vangrin will utilize a mixture of present performance and live-streaming, while toying with our bodily (and often, banal) experiences of living in New York’s cinematic monumentality.
