MeetFactory Gallery: Enacting Stillness: An Exhibition in Nine Parts / 7 pm - midnight (vernissage)
Enacting Stillness includes a group of visual and performance artists who are engaged with stillness, stoppage, and slowing down in the context of performance. Artists in the exhibition employ gestures that involve turning away, inward, and upward, upending our expectations for the continuity of dance and theatrical compositions and lines of movement and thought. Enacting Stillness considers the political and emotional potential that these unexpected ruptures might mean to both the artist and the viewer.
Participating artists: Rehan Ansari, Nicolás Dumit Estévez, Brendan Fernandes, Yoko Inoue, Kirsten Justesen, Claudia Joskowicz, Clifford Owens, Jan Pfeiffer, Emily Roysdon, Roman Štetina
