PERFORMANCES:

Wilmer Wilson IV "Bandage/I Voted"
Room 2 - all day

"A durational sculptural performance and photography installation created by Wilmer Wilson IV to examine the implications of everyday objects - band aids and a familiar emblem associated with political elections – I Voted stickers. When not performing, the artist will distribute materials to viewers."

James J. Williams III " Wandering Hearts Are Fond"
Pool Deck, south - 1:00pm

A 20-25 minute continuous multimedia performance that builds on the theme of relationships and power struggles. The elements of this work include video, music, and spoken word.

Melissa Ichiuji "Everything to Lose"
Pool Deck, south 3:30 pm

The artist conceived Everything to Lose as a work of total self-absorption. Through the use of movement, costume and sound, the artist metaphorically discards layers that separate her from others and from the divine universal spirit that comprises everything.


Saturday, September 24th
12:00pm – 7:00pm

PANEL: "Collecting for the Future"
Saturday, September 24th
2:00pm
Room 1

PERFORMANCE: Bradley Chriss- "Meat Poem: for Georges"
Room 3 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm

In this performance and installation, the artist will host a banquet for Georges Bataille’s ghost and read of selections of Bataille’s writings.


Sunday, September 25th
12:00pm – 5:00pm

PERFORMANCE: Holly Bass - "Moneymaker"
Pool Deck, west - 12:00pm - 5:00pm

This work builds on Bass’s exploration of images of black women in popular media, commercial hip-hop, and financial transactions between the artist and viewer - combining an endurance performance and a conceptual hip-hop art piece (consisting of 'Jukeboxes" made from Sambo-style penny banks and a wearable "bootyball") that generates and harnesses electric power.
