Sterling Music Room was a living room turned salon, exhibition and performance space, guest room, etc. in the artist's Brooklyn apartment. While this project drew inspiration from many places, at its heart it was a response to the rising rents and current luxurification of New York City. Through planned events as well as chance encounters, Sterling Music Room examined the possibilities and poetics of a critical and engaged domesticity under the conditions of late capitalism.
