About Gallery Installation:
A site-specific installation in Intersection's gallery created by internationally recognized visual and performance artist Suzanne Lacy with collaborators Julio Morales, Unique Holland, David Goldberg, Michelle Baughan, Raul Cabra & Patrick Toebe. Code 33 was a two-year project by a coalition of artists, activists, youth, and police that culminated in a performance event with 150 youth and 100 police officers. This installation - a condensed archive of the event in a gallery environment with video documentation, original audio soundtrack, event artifacts and ephemera, and youth-produced work - examines how art can be merged into the very fabric of community political life. Code 33 was produced by T.E.A.M. (Teens + Education + Art +Media), founded in 1994 by Suzanne Lacy, Chris Johnson, & Annice Jacoby.
