Recently Aperture Work Scholar’s visited the infamous arts space The Clocktower which was founded by innovator of the alternative space movement Alanna Heiss. The Clocktower, which is situated in downtown Manhattan on the top of a government municipal building is an art space situated inside a literal clock tower. It is the home to Art International Radio as well as a gallery and residency program. Most recently the Clocktower exhibited The Dangerous Book Four Boys the solo show debut of James Franco. Aperture Work Scholars were treated to a curator led tour of Franco’s exhibit and of this exceptional arts space by co-curator of the exhibit and manager of programming for The Clocktower space, Beatrice Johnson.
