Event Details

Join Studio Artist-in-Residence Grace Hwang for a performance cultivated from her fifteen-week tenure (1/4/17 - 4/15/17) at the Camera Obscura Art Lab. Light refreshments.

More information to come. 

Grace Hwang is a multidisciplinary artist and educator whose movement practice is fueled by improvising new forms through ensemble work and rule-based play. Often working with artists of different disciplines, she is deeply invested in the relationship between agency and collectivity in collaboration. She is developing a performance with collaborator Heisue Chung-Matheu that reflects upon the 1992 Los Angeles Riot/Uprising through memory, archive and the act of memorializing. It will be presented at Highways Performance Space in February 2017. At Camera Obscura Art Lab she is creating a hybrid art and dance studio to research and generate material for the production. Participants and visitors are invited to a series of papermaking and movement workshops, each of which will inform both the Highways performance and this closing presentation. 

Her work in the form of teaching, performance, exhibition and experience making has been shown at Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre (CA), Performance Works NorthWest, Portland Art Museum, Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (OR), Open Engagement Conference (OR), Southern Exposure (SF), Center for Architecture Foundation (NY), SALT art space (NY), Museum of Modern Art Education Center (NY). She holds an MFA in Art and Social Practice from Portland State University and an MS Ed in Museum Education from Bank Street College of Education. More at
