In Real Life: Studio provides a glimpse into the working processes of artists. Throughout the fall a select group of artists utilizes spaces in the museum to convene and rehearse new material, including theater, dance, music, and performance. While some artists and collectives will simply discuss or workshop material, others will produce a new project from rehearsal to final performance.
A celestial body in the form of a nonlinear autobiographical poem.
Ellipsis, ellipsis, ellipsis…
He’ll kiss your hand tenderly
beg to you from the corner
slice like razors from a golden cape
and spin as a orb of light out of a crack in the roof.
A search for liberation.
