Our white-walled exhibition space creates a rare opportunity to reframe the dialogue between the fields of visual arts and dance. Located in the atrium of our performing arts center, it allows audiences and viewers to look at visual art from a performing arts standpoint. Past exhibitions have ranged from explorations of personal and social identity to investigations of a particular form, and the gallery is continuously posing the question: what does it mean to present visual art work in a dance context?
All exhibitions are FREE and open to the public.
Maria Bauman: dying and dying and dying
August 18 - September 22, 2017
2017 Community Action Artist in Residence Maria Bauman presents dying and dying and dying, an installation and monument centered around ancestors, rest, and renewal. Along with a two-channel video installation edited by Ryan Tuerk, this exhibition will include a collective memorial created by participants of the Dancing Our Ancestors workshop, and two paintings by visual artist and dying and dying and dying cast member Courtney Cook. Cast members will periodically activate the installation with live performance.
dying and dying and dying will premiere at Gibney Dance in September 2017.
