GROUNDINGS

GROUNDINGS, organized by Grace Deveney and Tara Aisha Willis, explores movement—seen and unseen—through a series of residencies with artists who work in dance, music, and performance art. The exhibition considers the reciprocal influence between bodies in motion and the invisible forces that govern movement, such as gravity, time, and electricity.

Over the run of GROUNDINGS, performers will hold open rehearsals in which they create performances and physical objects that speak to the themes of the exhibition.

GROUNDINGS artists include Katinka Bock, Blythe Bohnen, George Brecht, John Cage, Martin Soto Climent, Julia Dault, JimmyDeSana, Jonas Dovydenas, Adam EkbergWhit Forrester, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Rashid Johnson, IsaacJulien, Annette Kelm, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Jack Pierson, Stan Shellabarger, Nancy Spero, Dannielle Tegeder, CarrieMae Weems, and James Welling.

THE EXHIBITION WILL BE LAID OUT IN LINES. THE EXHIBITION WILL BE HUNG IN

JUST SHAPES. PHOTOGRAPHY AND SCULPTURE ARE NOT THE SAME THING, BUT

THEY ARE COMPANIONS. SOME CHOOSE MORE, SOME CHOOSE LESS, EVERYONE

HAS TO HAVE AT LEAST TWO, AND THE BOUNDARIES ARE DERAILED.
