About the Project

For Walk-In Theater for Pedestrians, Carmella Saraceno presented an exhibition of painting and sculpture in the grand marble lobby of the Thurgood Marshall U. S. Courthouse. The installation employed furniture-like imagery to comment humorously on the bureaucratic regulations of courthouse ceremony.


Works in the show included a series of small yellow tables marching up a conveyor belt; The Flagellation of the Orange Table, which was an eight-foot high construction; and Memberships to be Carried at All Times, which included seventy-two units stacked and contained by two shelves.
