A Room Has Its Own Voice
September 16, 2017 - January 8, 2018

A Room Has Its Own Voice captures the sonic frequency or acoustics of a room. The artist, Troy Briggs, 'tunes' the interior rooms to the same frequency. Without visual cues, A Room Has Its Own Voice asks us to listen to rather than look at the architecture of a room.

In Wood We Trust
September 16, 2017 - January 8, 2018

The Chapuisat Brothers’ In Wood We Trust is a large outdoor architectural intervention and exhibition venue adjacent to 6018North that questions distinctions between architecture, art, work, play, and communal exchange. Its construction process –involving carpenters and visitors alike – is a utopian experiment in building community through architecture and art; it serves as a residence for its community of builders and is built without architectural plans but through group consensus. The structure’s main floor functions as a pavilion for exhibitions, performances, and gatherings. Below and above, it invites visitors to move through winding passages, trap doors, slides, and get lost within its intricate maze. This deceptively playful creation upends perceptions of order, space, movement, and gravity. Between architecture, sculpture, and playground, it posits that the visual, intellectual, corporeal, and convivial pleasure of experiencing and living with art should not be separated.

Public Celebration
September 23, 2017 4-8 pm

6018North celebrates the opening of three new architectural installations: The Chapuisat Brothers’ In Wood We Trust, Troy Briggs' A Room Has Its Own Voice, and  CV Peterson's Mykitas Epoch – Habitat. These works ask visitors to rethink how we experience architecture. 

Savageness, or There are veins embraced in the property
September 30, 2017 6-9 pm

This mixed reality performance featuring Abraham Avnisan, Judd Morrissey, and Jennifer Scappettone taps the sprawling veins of modern architecture and telecommunications infrastructures. Integrating immersive 3-d scans of the house with poetic reformulations of history, the performance creates an immersive yet otherworldly experience of the space, exposing the materials and human labor that make the networked domesticity of urban life possible.
