Bringing together creative artists to develop newly commissioned projects outside of physical space, Free Assembly presents a collaborative platform for artists who might otherwise never meet. Curated by Metropolis Ensemble artists Immanuel Wilkins, Erika Dohi, Daniel Anastasio, and Ryan Francis and hosted by House of Yes and (Le) Poisson Rouge, creators of diverse aesthetics and media are paired to share and collaborate, culminating in thematic video performances as part of a rolling online festival.
Free Assembly will be fertile ground for audiences who seek to discover new voices and artists exploring new forms of expression outside of their own.
