Made in collaboration with my sister, Kerry Tribe, Face Control was conceived in response to an invitation to
participate in Vision21, an art program organized by Real Gallery at Tunnel, a notorious New York
night club. We created a faux VIP section within Vision21, which itself functioned as a temporary VIP
section catering to an art-world clientele within the larger club. Velvet ropes separated the space from the rest of the club while a cast of professional actors played various roles,
including a bouncer to guard the entrance, a cocktail waitress and fabulous VIPs. We hired a photographer to take paparazzi-style photos of our guests. The project was not identified as art to other club-goers, and many patrons lined up to get in.
