Tribeca Festival Heads to Mercer Labs for Downtown’s Coolest Collab 

The annual Tribeca Festival hits New York City tomorrow, offering a full slate of film, music, games, talks, art and other programming from June 5 to June 16. And this year, it’s bringing something extra special to Lower Manhattan. From June 6 to June 17, Tribeca Festival is teaming up with super-trippy downtown newcomer Mercer Labs for its immersive art exhibition, which will be housed this year at the museum’s 36,000-square-foot (21 Dey St.) space. 

Marking Mercer Labs’s first guest-curated exhibition, Tribeca Festival’s program “offers a collective experience of visual and sonic artworks, specifically curated for the unique architecture of the space.” The program consists of eight large-scale immersive works from artists Memo Akten, Wen-Yee Hsieh, ScanLAB ScanLAB Projects, Robertina Šebjanič, Liam Young and Sutu, which will rotate in some of Mercer’s exhibition spaces. Expect a creative potpourri of work touching on architecture, film, animation, sculpture, theater, dance, music and audio, all amplified by Mercer’s state-of-the-art technology.  

The immersive exhibitions will be paired with artist talks and other programming at Spring Studios in Tribeca; for more information, including ticketing and artist bios, visit Tribeca Festival’s website.
