We are pleased to present the new installment of “Quarterly,” a series organized by Machine Project in conjunction with Cabinet.

This installment of the series will take place at the Gamble House in Pasadena as part of Machine’s two-week “Field Guide to the Gamble House” residency. Cabinet’s contribution revives our Bunk Bed Conversations—a form of intellectual theater that explores the public potential of this most private, archaic, and companionable of American scenes—except without the bunks!

Over the course of two hours, a rotation of eight guests—Mark Allen, Agnes Bolt, Ingrid Calame, Leland de la Durantaye, Josh Kun, Sarah Lehrer-Graiwer, Mark Lipson, and Brian McMullen—will occupy Gamble House beds, animating the spirit of the house with broad-ranging and quick-changing dialogue. The Greeks believed that posture and physical disposition affect the mental faculties. We’ll be putting this hypothesis to the test.
