Anya Liftig at Airline Street

June 24th, 2012 Jason Parker Posted in Event, Performance No Comments »

Anya Liftig returns to Atlanta for her most physically challenging performance to date. “I’m a Groucho Marxist” draws from the history of literally and socially imposed barriers in Atlanta’s past.

During this three-hour durational performance, Liftig will challenge herself to cross a barricade while blindfolded and partially bound. As with most of Liftig’s work, the built-in physical hardship is integral to the project, and this work in particular addresses the difficulty in crossing boundaries.

The Good Food Truck and the King of Pops will be on site with project inspired menus.

In addition to street parking, the location is easily accessible from both the Inman Park/Reynoldstown and the King Memorial MARTA stations. Bike parking will also be available.

660 Airline Street, NE
Atlanta, GA 30312

Airline Street turns north off Dekalb Avenue one block west of Krog Street.
