in the name of safety and security this installation is no longer possible in New York City . . .
Dear New York City,
on Friday October 21, 2011 we are screening a rough cut of ‘QUIET: WE LIVE IN PUBLIC’ – the greatest party in the history of New York City (tied with Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball) . . .
~ it was great because we did it at the Millennium in New York City.
~ it was great because we were free from the constraints of money.
~ it was great because we were free from the constraints of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the New York State Division of Military and Naval Affairs, and the New York City Police Department who now trade our freedom in the name of safety and security.
~ it was great because a group of fine artists worked individually and in concert to create a present and a future.
~ it was great because now, 11 years later, it raises the bar for all artists everywhere.
Please join us.

JOSH HARRIS – MAKES THE COVER OF THE MOMA/MUSEUM OF MODERN ART EVENTS CALENDAR – JULY 2010.
JOSH is caught in the public, make that VERY public – as in group shower, make that transparent group shower, make that, and under 24/7 live streaming surveillance . . . at ‘QUIET: WE LIVE IN PUBLIC’ – the 2 week long NYC million dollar Millennium party and multi-artist art installation that he funded – with his dot.com dough – and which became the basis for Ondi Timoner’s – Sundance Grand Jury Prize winning Documentary of 2009 – the Josh Harris bio – ‘WE LIVE IN PUBLIC’. or as Ondi put it: “the story of the most famous web entrepreneur you never heard of.”
After winning at Sundance, the film beat out the much lauded ‘September Issue’ about Anna Wintour and Vogue Magazine, bye the way – and made Ondi Timoner the only director – ever – to win 2 Sundance awards, (she also won for her earlier rock documentary ‘Dig!’) . . . . ‘WE LIVE IN PUBLIC’ went on to have its New York City premiere at MOMA – and was included in several of their cutting edge film festivals.
