OCULARPATION: WALL STREET

The most famous street in the world also happens to be one of the least known – love it or hate it, Wall Street remains a mystery. During his residency, Throwell will develop Ocularpation: Wall Street, which will measure the true demographics of the street and reveal them in bright, living color this summer with a 50 person expose performance.
