Join us for an afternoon of dance and performance art in conjunction with the BRIC Biennial: Volume II exhibition. There will be performances by Jonathan Allen and Maria Hupfield.
Maria Hupfield, 4 Lines in 4 Directions, 2016
The work 4 Lines in 4 Directions includes a 15min performance by Maria Hupfield in which she will focus on being in good relations to place. Centered around the number 4 this work will move through a combination of scored and unscored representational and abstract movement, visualities and verbalizations that reference systems of structure and contemporary living. Hupfield grounds her work in everyday materials and experiences; during her live performances items displayed in the gallery acquire new meaning. 4 Lines in 4 Directions is comprised of 4 wood planks and the following industrial felt custom made components by the artist: a hand-cut circular floral motif, silhouette of the artist crouching, and pair of moccasins.
Jonathan Allen, FOUNDERS
FOUNDERS, by Jonathan Allen, is a series of poetic and absurd evocations of specific founders of New York City contemporary art institutions. The two previous incarnations of this "pop up performance" were in October 2015 outside the Whitney Museum of American Art, and in May 2016 outside the Guggenheim. See more about those two performances here.
On Saturday, December 17 at 1pm, find performers Jonathan Allen, Stanley Gambucci, and Lindsey Jones outside of BRIC (dress warmly!) and join them for this free 20 minute performance. There is no seating and the audience is strongly encouraged to follow the performers on their journey.
