Over the run of the exhibition “Groundings,” the performers hold open rehearsals in which they create performances and physical objects that speak to the themes of the exhibition. Informal performances occur at 6 pm on Fridays and will be followed by an opportunity for artists to solicit feedback from assembled participants and audiences.
Mariana Valencia is a dance artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Valencia is researching a performance lecture that will interrogate various ways of making sound. The dance will be developed from different stepping forms from American folk dances, tap, and flamenco that she calls “soundings.”
In Progress is a series designed to give patrons a look into the process of artists, thinkers, and curators. The exhibition “Groundings” is organized by Assistant Curator Grace Deveney and Associate Curator of Performance Tara Aisha Willis.
**This event is free with museum admission.**
