As part of the public launch of Journey, we invite you to support and participate in a Salon event that Asher will be hosting at Journey on Sunday January 29th from 4:30-6pm.
By way of background, Asher founded and runs Hyphen Hub, a non-profit organization that explores new models of artistic collaboration with a focus on new and emerging technologies. Producing innovative live performances, installations, and art salons, Hyphen Hub also serves as a platform for a global community of artists, engineers, designers, performers, musicians, and tech innovators to connect, share, and collaborate.
Journey has already partnered with several Hyphen Hub artists including FashionTech designer Anouk Wipprecht, who produced the otherworldly hostess dresses; multimedia artist Claudia Hart who created the AR (artificial reality) plates for the Café and Lounge; and Atractor, an artistic collective that has been designing and installing tabletop projection mapping, both for the Lounge and the Bar table tops. These three will be the featured speakers, presenting the work they’ve created for Journey. In addition, we expect to have other Journey creative collaborators from New York’s theater world to discuss their contributions to—as the New York Times described it—“this new futuristic gastronomic extravaganza.”
Asher’s Salons are informal gatherings where creators and innovators discuss and present their work to a select audience representing, not just artists, but a wide range of individuals and institutions with whom he collaborates including museums, universities, foreign embassies, local government, and tech companies that Asher has built long standing relationships with.
As Journey is a merger of theater, culinary experiences, art, and cutting-edge technology, we would love for you to mark your calendars and join us for this special event.
