WE ARE A CROWD OF OTHERS
Each Other Performance
MadArt, Seattle, WA

Friday, Dec 16, 2016 11a-3p
Saturday, Dec 17, 2016 11a-3p

FINAL PERFORMANCE:

More about the WE ARE A CROWD OF OTHERS: We Are a Crowd of Others is a forum for people to engage with this reality: a person’s identity often exceeds the limitations of their body, manifesting in words and actions. The performances, installations, readings and other events that make up this exhibition are disparate but the lens we use to view them is singular. We are examining a synchronous vibration: how does something resonate within a culture? How does it extend beyond a source, moving through rather than between people? How does it amplify or fade away?  http://crowdofothers.com/

SIX WEEKS, IN TIME
March 26 - May 8, 2016
Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, WA
Tamin Totzke and I are thrilled to have new work in an upcoming exhibition, Six Weeks, in Time, at the Henry Art Gallery. In this show artists working across the time-based arts—from live performance to performative sculpture—present work that explores time as a fluid material.   Our project, approaching proximity, challenges contemporary notions of productivity by prioritizing human connection.  Emerging from our research at the Georgetown Steam Plant, we will transform repetitive object-oriented gestures into human-to-human relationships drawing attention to meaning formed through proximity.

Please join us for live performances on
Saturday April 2, 11:30-3:30pm
Sunday April 17, 11:30-3:30pm
Created in collaboration with performers: Grant Bowen, Jeff Huston, Mary Margaret Moore and kt Shores.
Video and drawings used in our performance research will be on display for the duration of the exhibition.
