Border Patrol is pleased to present, Night Guard Recruitment Day, a performance by Prudence Ho on occasion of the closing of the group exhibition, The We. The You. The Us., curated by Baxter Koziol.
Night Guard Recruitment Day is a participatory performance in which guests are invited to step into a day in the life of a museum night guard. Mimicking recruitment events sponsored by The Museum, Ho will lead visitors through a series of tasks related to the exhibition that including hiring, working, and resigning--duties typically assigned to a night security guard. This participatory performance references cult religions and a sense of belonging. It is an exploration of the purposeless purposes and the forced engagement towards hierarchy.
