Friday, November 11, 2011
11:11 am – 1:11 pm

Tour will begin at the Obelisk (Cleopatra's Needle) on 81st Street.

Admission: $10


Performa and Moon and Stars Project are pleased to present Aslı Çavuşoğlu's “Words Dash Against the Façade,” a fortune-telling walking tour of Manhattan’s famous buildings during which selected interpreters will be given free reign to create the rules of fortune-telling through the use of potentially disputable sources and through the framework of their personal perspectives. This unusual project, curated by Defne Ayas, is part of Performa 11, the fourth edition of the visual art performance biennial in New York City (November 1–21, 2011), and the first work in the United States by Istanbul-based Çavuşoğlu.

Buildings include: Hearst Tower, Club 21 and 55 Central West aka Ghostbusters Building.
