Moral Kombat: Cameron Stallones of Sun Araw vs. G Lucas Crane



The seventh edition of Moral Kombat took place on June 6, 2011 with Cameron Stallones of Sun Araw--who flew in from L.A. just to have his ethical metal measured by the Moral Magistrate--in a duo match against tape manipulationist G Lucas Crane. The Moral Magistrate is a machine/computer/construction that listens, gathers data, and calculates morality. It is literally patched into the signal path of each player. At the conclusion of each performance the machine indicates the morally superior performance. Moral Kombat is made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, celebrating 50 years of building strong, creative communities in New York State's 62 counties, and support from the Jerome Foundation that seeks to foster a dynamic and evolving culture by supporting the creation, development, and production of new works by emerging artists.

The Clocktower Gallery was founded by the alternative spaces movement pioneer Alanna Heiss in 1972. After a hiatus as a gallery space (after the Sept. 11, 2001 events nearby), the Clocktower Gallery reinaugurated its exhibition programming in 2005 as part of MoMA/PS1 and, after 2008, under the auspices of the newly founded Art International Radio (now Clocktower Productions). Clocktower Exhibits is home to interviews with and performances by its exhibitions' participating artists and curators over these many years.

For more Clocktower history, listen to The Clocktower Oral History Project, in which such figures as Vito Acconci, Bill Beirne, Colette, Jeffrey Deitch, Mary Heilmann, Jene Highstein, Ann Magnuson, Richard Nonas and Joel Shapiro reflect upon their experiences with this unique New York space.
