As part of our yearlong Migration theme, the Bureau of Unknown Destinations will offer temporary displacements to members of the public seeking to experiment with their migratory impulses, starting January 12, 7pm. Make a booking for a day’s journey, and you’ll be presented with a free round trip ticket for a train adventure (along with a notebook and a small, somewhat absurd, task). Begin your day by tearing open a sealed envelope and revealing the mystery of where you will find yourself by noon. Set forth, free of decisions, into the great (or perhaps, in this case, the small) unknown. Test your sense of destiny. Have lunch someplace new.
Book your travel up to two weeks in advance at the Bureau’s offices, located at Proteus Gowanus. Offices are open most Saturdays 1-5, as well as irregularly on other days, and always by appointment.
The Bureau of Unknown Destinations is part of a three month artist’s residency by Sal Randolph at Proteus Gowanus, extending through mid-April. Proteus Gowanus is an interdisciplinary gallery and reading room located on the shores of the Gowanus canal in Brooklyn. Their yearlong theme is Migration.
