31000 square feet of rally art and kinetic sculptures in New Orleans during a music festival, guest curated by New Orleans Airlift.
A collection of New Orleans art vehicles gathered to showcase and compete in a rally that represented the full range of the city’s clubs and individuals who’ve turned their rides into art. Despite their shared passion, most had never even met before.
Tricked out low riders, freak bikes, painted motorcycles, urban cowboys dancing on horses, four-wheelers and more were sized-up by the judges in a competition for the prettiest and most fierce riders in the city.
Along with the rally vehicles from Louisiana Whipz, Crescent City Pedallers, Dirty South Riders, Buffalo Soldiers, Hands On Throttle Bike Club, Juanki, Twine, The Reader and many more (28 095 square feet), there were pages of choreography mapped by Claire Tancons and Delaney Martin (6 square feet), rally signs, totems, murals, banners and a custom-built stage, by Heidi Tullma, Laura McMillian, Ben Wolf, The Reader (1643 square feet), a halftime show of twirling batons by Katey Red & The Terror Squad (500 square feet), The Prancing Elites acting as color guard, leading vehicles around the lot (500 square feet), a vintage boombox installation and performance by break dancer Sohlid Gold (240 square feet) and a drive-thru photobooth by Sarrah Danziger with guest artist Alanna Maureen Geare (16 square feet).
Featuring special guest hosts: Mannie Fresh and Jack Mizrahi
This was 31000 square feet as part of the One Million Square Feet of Culture initiative.
There's no telling what will exist one million square feet from now.
Only the size is certain.
