Performance | Saturday, Mar 5, 2016 | 1:00 PM | $Free
Please join us for a new performance by artist Holly Bass created specifically for her solo exhibition “Holly Bass: Root Work.” Bass will explore themes of heritage and blood memory through physical actions, original text and traditional hymns and work songs. Her performance, installation, video and photographic work will investigate the intersections of land, labor, and family. Immediately following the performance, a reception will be held from 2:00pm to 4:00pm which will include remarks delivered by the artist. Bass, who creates compelling works that challenge and also highlight shared human connections, will examine her father’s story of working at an after-school job picking cotton by hand, providing a way into unraveling the complicated roots of an aspect of national identity. Her installation, video and photographic work will remain on view in the gallery through Saturday, March 26. “Holly Bass: Root Work” is a performative installation curated by Jarvis Dubois.
RSVPs are highly recommended due to space limitations, details inside.
