On June 2017, Guerilla Science will unveil our first theatrical collaboration in NYC, Works on Water.

The project brings together artists, scientists, water advocates, and audiences into a boundary-crossing twenty-six days of art, theater, and experiences about the relationship between people and water — on an individual, community, and humanitarian scale.

Below are the partners, programming, and collaborators working with Guerilla Science to build a watery world of exploration.

And more!


The exhibitions:

A core group of artists — Torkwase Dyson, Dylan Gauthier, Marie Lorenz, Mary Mattingly, Clarinda Mac Low, Paloma McGregor, Eve Mosher, Nancy Nowacek, Katie Pearl, Sarah Cameron Sunde, Marina Zurkow — whose works of time-based visual and participatory art use water as site or material. The artworks will principally exist outdoors, with some represented indoors by installations that serve as portals to the works’ dynamic nature.  There will also be satellite projects and one-time art experiences commissioned specifically for Works on Water.

The partners:
