Event description
"Ocean Body" - Exhibition Opening

About this event

Wasserman Projects is pleased to present our Fall 2021 Exhibition, Ocean Body featuring an immersive four-screen, multi-channel sound installation by Helga Davis, Mark DeChiazza, and Shara Nova. The work brings together song, found text, conversations, and new compositions written and performed by Davis and Nova in a sculptural dress built for two by artist, Annica Cuppetelli. Filmed and directed by DeChiazza, the installation explores the potential of interracial coalition through the deep yet tenuous bonds of the decade-long close friendship between the two women.

Paired alongside the installation, is a six-person group exhibition featuring works by John Dante Bianchi, Lily Cox-Richard, Ed Fraga, Jack Henry, Sandra Osip, and Ashley Eliza Williams. Mirroring the duality of intimacy and isolation in our relationships with each other and the world around us, the two and three-dimensional works as part of Ocean Body range from the monolithic to the minute. The exhibition will be on view by appointment beginning September 29 through December 18, 2021.

Proudly co-presented with the Michigan Opera Theatre and their production of Ragnar Kjartansson's Bliss, premiering the same day at the historic Michigan Theatre Building. For more information and to reserve tickets for Bliss, click HERE.

A courtesy shuttle from will be available from 12-9pm between event locations.
