*Envisioned as an exchange between Mascher Space and High Tide Gallery,
both cooperative run art spaces based in Fishtown, this exhibition features
Artist in Residence and friends of Mascher. Three films will be on display
throughout the evening, all of which explore imagery that is doubled in
some way. From 6pm-7:30pm, there will be a solo performance by Christina
Gesualdi in which she manipulates material; from 7:30pm-8pm, the outcome of
the material can be viewed as installation. The night culminates with an
