SculptureCenter will host a performance event titled "Reverberations" today, December 15, 2012.
Embracing lengthy formats and quotidian content, Reverberations mines an inherent materiality within the ephemeral moments of dance, film, and sound. By stretching out, slowing down, or pausing time-based and performative mediums, this group of artists focuses on the sculptural properties of sound, light, and bodies. Often embracing "unwanted" signals and possible discomfort, these projects elucidate physical and social structures only to disrupt them. The newly commissioned performances in Reverberations were created for SculptureCenter's 2012-2013 In Practice program, and curated by Assistant Curator Kristen Chappa.
Schedule of Performances:
Park McArthur and Yve Laris Cohen: 1-2pm
R. E. H. Gordon: 2, 3, 4, and 5pm
Paul Clipson and Joshua Churchill: 2:30 and 4:30pm
Woody Sullender: 3:30pm
Please note, the previously scheduled performance by Stephen Lichty and Neil Marcus has been postponed until further notice.
SculptureCenter's In Practice program supports the creation and presentation of new work by emerging artists and reflects diverse approaches to contemporary sculpture. Artists are selected through a call for proposals and are provided with an honorarium, production budget, fabrication and installation assistance, as well as invaluable curatorial and administrative support.
