Moral Kombat: Darren "Driphouse" Ho vs. G Lucas Crane

Moral Kombat is a bi-monthly performance series, curated by former Clocktower artist in residence G Lucas Crane, that pairs audio artists together in a sound battle in the Clocktower. An inquiry into the impossibility of assigning objective value to music, this series poses the question: "Which one is the morally superior composer?" A question answered by the equally thought provoking Moral Magistrate, an interactive light sculpture built to communicate messages of fate.

In the inaugural event of the series on January 18th, Darren Ho battled G Lucas Crane, with Crane receiving the blessing of the Moral Magistrate.


Clocktower Exhibits & Events


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. Organized by artist Nancy Hwang for the Fall 2009 AVANT-GUIDE TO NYC: Discovering Absence exhibition at apexart. .
