Over a two-week period in late July and early August, performers will rehearse with Gibson, acting and performing in a video iteration of the live performance in multiple sites throughout the Roaring Fork Valley. This corresponding video will be featured as part of Gibson’s exhibition of the same name on the museum’s Roof Deck and in the Lower Level from November 4, 2022, through November 5, 2023. Concepts rooted in Indigenous kinship philosophies inform this performance and video, which acknowledge all living things in our shared environment as our relatives and as equal living entities.
AAM Members and ArtCrush Gala guests will have first access.
Please contact Aryn Foland at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and registration.
