Artist taisha paggett presents a series of solo and duet dances in dialogue with her Made in L.A. 2018 installation. Engaging ideas of race, history, and institutional representation, these durational actions consider the liberatory potential of black and brown bodies moving within the galleries and beyond.

i believe in echoes: a performance and listening practice with taisha paggett
Sunday, July 8, noon–4 p.m.
the praxis of meadow and collective solitude
taisha paggett engages the Hammer’s Nimoy Studio and courtyard as a contemplative praxis space that actively invites the public to respond to a series of questions, dance scores, and invitations. Accompanied by members of her dance company project WXPT, paggett activates the space through a series of movements that stand on the cusp of practice and performance.
This event, while open to everyone, is intended to create space for POC and allies.
Saturday, September 1, noon–4 p.m.
