You're invited to join us for a special potluck event, El Salón, inside The Incoherents Salon.

El Salón is a collective of artist that host a series of potluck dinners every third-Friday of the month. These dinners are thoughtfully curated around artists, arts workers, and cultural producers to present their work to likeminded colleagues. This networking program  aims to contextualize shared experiences in our current socio-political moment. Our meeting place changes month to month from an apartment, to a loft, to a gallery, to wherever our network extends and welcomes us and this month will be at Hunter East Harlem Gallery.

Open to all, please bring a delicious dish and an experience to share!

The comedic arts collective Talk Hole (b. 2015, New York), will stage a takeover of the HEHG. A symposia like no other, this one-night only, immersive banquet of avant-garde performance will be nothing less than a total gut renovation of the classic French salon borrowing themes of satire from The Incoherents.

Talk Hole is Steven Phillips-Horst and Eric Schwartau.

*“Nice” as in Nice, France, the city on the Mediterranean coast.
