If you know me well, or even kept up with me on social media, you know I'm always up to something. I'm always trying to attend networking events, panel discussions, visit new restaurants, and meet new people. Essentially, I absolutely adore cool, creative, and unique experiences and I'm always down to check them out. I also have major fomo (fear of missing out) but that's a story for another time.
So when Kyle (my bestfriend- you'll probably see him up here a lot) and I heard about Martin Creed's latest exhibit that included a balloon filled room, it was a must! Even if I didn't like it, I'd get an Instagram out of it and we all know, you can't go wrong with those!
The Back Door exhibit is tucked away on the upper east side of New York City in the Park Avenue Armory. Running from June 8 - August 7, the exhibit is very peculiar to say the least. Occupying the entire first floor of the armory, the experience includes doors and curtains opening and closing on their own, flickering lights, a series of videos that explore humans in their natural state, live music (literally individuals walking around playing music and singing the entire time), and of course the balloon filled room. My description doesn't do the exhibit much justice, you'd have to definitely check it out for yourself. Trust me, it's worth it. And if you don't enjoy it, get yourself a dope Instagram picture and call it a day. I'll even help you out with a caption if need be.
Of course my favorite part was the balloon filled room because I'm shamelessly never growing up. I honestly felt like a kid again. At 20+ years old, I got really excited entering a room filled with just balloons. Remember when the simple things made us happy? *insert sigh here* Kyle and I actually went in there twice because it's not every day you get to experience something like this.
So yeah, that's how I spent my Tuesday afternoon. Ya know, the norm.
Below are some photos of our fun. Also, check out some other pictures of the exhibit here.
