Prisoners of Eastern State

Tonight’s the opening of Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller’s “Pandemonium” at Eastern State Penitentiary, the penal relic from 1829 that has now become host to some great art. (pictured are Miller and Cardiff at this morning’s press preview. Miller’s been in Philadelphia for six weeks working on the 14-minute live percussive audio piece.)

Installations by local artists also opening tonight at ESP include works by Linda Brenner, Nick Cassway, Dayton Castleman, Michael Grothusen, Alexa Hoyer, Matthew and Jonathan Stemler, Tricia Stuth and Ted Shelton and Judith Taylor.

Reception’s from 5 pm-7 pm. Free and open to the public.
