Through installations inspired by underground music clubs, written scores that instruct audiences, performed celebratory rituals, and videos that simultaneously world-build and critique existing sociopolitical systems, "Love Action Art Lounge" becomes its own hang out space that reflects the people-positive, aspirational, and, at times transgressive, attributes of its artists and collectives. Love Action Art Lounge will be on display through May 7 at Franklin Street Artworks 41 Franklin St. in Stamford. Gallery Hours are Tues. - Sun. 12 a.m. - 5 p.m.
