Sleep Exchange

Sleep Exchange is an experiment in free, mutual support and education presented by participants of sunday school. For two-weeks, Chinatown’s SLEEPCENTER will become home to an open work station and an evolving program of classes, conversations, workshops, symposia, fairs, and more. All activities are open to participation and collaboration.

A list of shared resources and an open program of events can be found at the Sleep Exchange Bulletin Board. The space, schedule and resources are made available to all. Events and spontaneous actions will be posted on a daily basis, as participants develop new ideas and proposals.

Sleep Exchange is presented as part of Summer Sessions, a program of events featuring artist collectives sunday school, home school, and We’re Hir, We’re Queer. 

Curated by unbag, in collaboration with SLEEPCENTER.


sun-dae school is a nomadic free school and horizontal learning platform based in and around NYC. It is a continuous reflection on the potential of mutual education, experimentation, community, care, and alternative forms of group intimacy. Participants are encouraged to embrace cycles of learning (and unlearning) and to boldly claim and create places for thinking, questioning, and making.

unbag is a curatorial and publishing collective that promotes critical engagement with contemporary art and politics. Commissioning projects from artists, writers, and thinkers who work outside of mainstream discourses, it functions to explore ideas through discussion and exchange.

SLEEPCENTER, located on the harmonious Monroe street in Chinatown, New York, is an interdisciplinary laboratory for art and ideas. 9 Monroe Street, bsmt, New York, NY, 10002.
