12128 is happy to announce our 2014 summer schedule, featuring performances by Jordan Wayne Long and Michael Trigilio (here and here also).

As part of the first round of our SUMMER MICRORESIDENCIES program, and with generous support from PICA's Precipice Fund, both artists will have two weeks to eat hot dogs and watermelon and stage their work. Each short residency will culminate in some flavor of performance / exhibition / event. It promises to be real, loud, and summer.

Jordan Wayne Long: SATURDAY JULY 19 | 6 pm >> performance at 7 pm

Michael Trigilio: FRIDAY AUGUST 1 | 6 pm >> performance at 8 pm
