The Prom Show is a group show curated by Sara Knight with performances featuring Abby Gregg (as DJ/Gym Teacher), Alex Taylor, Eliza Mitchell, and the curator herself.
In the United States “Prom” is a phenomenon. A night that American teenagers are led to believe is the best night of their young lives, the last step before graduation and college. The first step in a lifetime of performing youth, nostalgia, and above all, normativity. Most American coming-of-age TV shows or movies have at least one prom scene. It's a night all about the performance, so what does it mean when we perform it again as adults?
PROM is a fully immersive installation where the viewer is performer within the space. On October 20th, the fuller performance of PROM will take place, and you are invited.
