After Hours: Biba Bell & Sherry Dobbin Interview

Beatrice Johnson sits down with dancer and choreographer Biba Bell and Times Square Alliance's Director of Public Art Sherry Dobbin in celebration of the first event of the Spring 2014 After Hours series produced in collaboration with Times Square Arts. The trio discuss Bell's site-specific performance at the R Lounge, Plume in which she engages the lounge's vaulted walls, broad windows, and dramatic views of Times Square into her choreographed piece.

Bell's work examines the presence of the body as object in its dual relationship with a surrounding space and the viewer's gaze. Her performance process pushes the bound structures of framing in artwork and reshuffles relational understanding. She is a founding member of the collaborative performance group MGM Grand (Modern Garage Movement) and has performed at such venues as the Kitchen and Dance Theater workshop.

Plume takes place at R Lounge on Wed. 19 Feb. 2014, 10pm-12am. Limited seating. RSVP.


Clocktower Exhibits & Events


Clocktower Exhibits & Events is home to an archive of interviews with artists, curators, musicians, organizers, and more who have participated in Clocktower exhibitions and events throughout our organization’s history.

Many of the below recordings were documented while Clocktower was in the midst of a transformation. The original name, The Clocktower Gallery, was given to the exhibition, residency, and performance space in TriBeCa, founded by alternative spaces movement pioneer Alanna Heiss in 1972. After 2001, the Clocktower Gallery re-inaugurated its exhibition programming in 2005 as part of MoMA/PS1 and, after 2008, under the auspices of Art International Radio. In 2013, we moved on from our downtown Manhattan location, and have since renamed the organization Clocktower Productions, a title which encompasses our radio, exhibition, and event programming.

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.

NB: Clocktower Radio was launched by MoMA/PS1 in 2004 as the Web's first art radio station. It has been independent since 2009 and is licensed to host content created under PS1 management. Programs produced prior to 2011 may refer to our earlier URLs and station IDs, including,, and Art International Radio.
