GRADUATE THESIS EXHIBITION /// II
MFA IN PROCESS
SAVE THE DATE!!! FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2017
Body Works is a symposium of performances, workshops, and collaborative projects that will examine the body as both material and tool in contemporary performance. Including practices of dance, theatre, costume, and sound Body Works brings together a diverse group of Philadelphia artists who use their bodies to engage viewers with their craft and create new spaces for social action, dialogue, and representation. For this presentation, The Levy Gallery for the Arts in Philadelphia will be transformed into a multi-use performance space where the lines between viewer and performer will become blurred and where audience participation directly informs the artists' processes.
Nick Lenker: Recreation
"The First Person"
Philadelphia artist Nick Lenker addresses the complexities of dealing with identity and intimacy within virtual/digital spaces. Through exploring voyeurism and performance of self, Lenker transforms the gallery space into a narrative environment that tells the story of a character whose world is rendered through three-dimensional, digital modeling software and whose existence is the sum of the objects he collects through his journeys.
