The work was filmed as part of Ms. Laser’s residency at Lower East Side/Chinatown space Forever & Today Inc., and features work shot during a convening of curator Summer Guthery’s Canal Series. Including excerpts of several Laser performances, Push Poll has a pretty stellar selection of guests—Observer contributor Anthony Haden-Guest, for one.
