The result of the recent Inflatable Architecture Workshop, led by visiting Baltimore-based artist Rachael Shannon, will be on view 6PM-12AM at The Khyber on 1880 Hollis St. for Nocturne.

This workshop took place on October 12th at The Khyber space, with continued studio hours for participants on the following days leading up to Nocturne. Participants engaged in a collaborative process that resulted in the construction of an ever growing and changing inflatable piece.

The Khyber will also be provided with a musical backdrop of dark ambient industrial electronic experimental soundscapes from DJ Megalon. Our bar will be open to those 19+ with legal government issued ID.
