Last. Most recent. Final. Resilient. L A S T I N G extends an invitation to participate in a six hour voyage that launches into dialogues of existence and persistence, experienced through the works in SAIC’s MFA Show 2017.
Navigate forms of endurance through a series of simultaneous, durational and iterative performances, workshops, artist panels and more. This prolonged evening seeks to cultivate a thoughtful, decelerated viewership for performances and programs that take us through the cycle of resistance, patient weathering, and restoration.
L A S T I N G culminates in a final celebration at a one hour dance party in the Sullivan Galleries for the final evening of the MFA Show.
