Secession 2015 invites audiences into a house on Governors Island where poetry, song, dance, and theater come together for an immersive event. Based on the lives and work of the artists of the Vienna Secession, this multi-disciplinary piece follows the dreams and downfalls of these prolific artists and their muses. As audiences weave through the walls of art, Secession 2015’s living gallery explores the line between who paints and who gets painted.
