Allora and Calzadilla: Specters of Noon

Specters of Noon is comprised of seven new works by the internationally renowned Puerto Rico-based artists Allora and Calzadilla (Jennifer Allora, b. 1974, and Guillermo Calzadilla, b. 1971).

The Puerto Rico-based artists, inspired by early-20th century Surrealist writing that probed the mystery of the midday hour, have created a group of sculptural work with light projections, live vocal performance, bat guano, silk flora, ship engines, and coal that captures the energy and intrigue of this fleeting time, when shadows disappear and delirious visions and ghosts
