POETICS OF OBJECTS, PERFORMANCE AND MEMORY : DISCUSSION AND CRITIQUE WITH MARIA HUPFIELD

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2017 

18:00 TO 21:00

Gallery 44 and co-presenter The Power Plant have organized this event in conjunction with Maria Hupfield’s newly commissioned solo exhibition, The One Who Keeps On Giving.

http://www.thepowerplant.org/Exhibitions/2017/Winter-2017/Maria-Hupfield–Solo-exhibition.aspx

In live performance, Hupfield inserts herself into new conversations, activates the spaces she occupies, and locates the body in relationship to self, others, objects and place. Her hand-sewn creations function as tools; jingles track body rhythms and modified industrial felt pieces serve as both shield and screen. These sculptures are then carried on the body, recalling everyday contemporary life while simultaneously reflecting upon sight, sound, and unexpected shifts in meaning.

Participants are encouraged to bring 5-7 small photographs (no larger than 11″x17″) or digital documentation on a USB from a complete or in-progress series. Artists will participate in a sharing circle intended to stimulate constructive criticism and creative feedback from Maria and other participants.

*Registration is limited to 10 participants max in order to permit informal and intimate conversation and critique. There is a $50 fee for participants.
