An Outdoor Performance and Cinema Event at Side Street Projects curated by Elana Mann

FREE and open to the public

About the Performance and Screenings:
Inspired by 10-day-long traffic jams in China, devastating oil spills in the gulf, the "end" of the Iraq war, and fatal off-road races in the Mojave desert, Driven by What's Inside is an outdoor performance and cinema event that reconsiders the role of the automobile in contemporary society.

The evening brings together recent performance and video work by Vera Brunner-Sung, Ecstatic Energy Consultants Inc. in collaboration with Elana Mann, Diana-Sofia Estrada, Alexa Gerrity, Joseph Imhauser, Noah Klersfeld, Julie Lequin, Benjamin Love, Susan Mogul, and Carlin Wing.

These artworks undermine the banality and brutality of the automobile by any means possible whether through psychedelic road-tripping, FM radio talk-shows, or love songs. Artist Elana Mann presents Driven by What's Inside as a way to deepen explorations in her own work related to cars, driving, and war. This event is the second in a new series for Mann, in which she will be attempting to redress her grandfather's involvement in the Manhattan Project by creating a "peace bomb" with other artists. Drive-in, walk-in, cycle-in, but bring a blanket, folding chair or seatbelt, it's going to be a bumpy ride.

If you'd like more information about Driven by What's Inside or would like to schedule an interview, please contact Elana Mann at (971) 409-8205 or
