Monkey Town, the first experimental, completely immersive film and food experience, returns to NYC at Eyebeam (540 W 21st St) this summer, June 13 – August 11, for a two month nightly pop up before launching a national tour.
The beloved Monkey Town, which lived for 7 years in Williamsburg until 2010, will once again pair visually captivating film and videos with top chefs creating meals and pairings to compliment the program. The event recreates its original and still unprecedented cinema-in-the-round by forming a floating cube from 4 massive projection screens and 8.1 surround sound. The new rendition will feature a single curated film and video program that replays every night for 60 days, featuring almost all multi-channel works by 21 extraordinary artists and filmmakers.
