Work by Pairs
On view Janurary 27 – February 26
The Safarani Sisters will be performing ‘Journey’ a new piece featuring the following vocalists: Brandon Allen, Norma Shafer, Eck Sierra (composer), Melissa Weikart, Travis Yee, Cale Israel, Katya Popova, Nesligul Kaya, Rubin Hohlbein, John Cushing, Caroline Houlihan, Steve Gold, Shuggy Sugarman and Amelia Andrews.
Being with others (being in society) is a process, one where we hope that healthy dialogue leads to a better whole. An exploration of dialogue, via collaborative duos, seems pertinent to our political moment.
Work by Pairs attempts to draw out the processes and possibilities of collaboration. Collaborative processes inspire a release of control, and trust of one’s partner; one’s creativity can abandon the limitations and habits of a single ego, and interact with its counterpart in another.
The artists featured span the disciplines of painting, sculpture, photography, music, and performance. Their relationships are those of friends, romantic partners, sisters, and mother-daughter.
