Performances and Social Practices

 

All Weekend, Lawn Area

Hunter Franks

Fear Doctor

The clear lack of connection and empathy between people of differing socio-economic levels is driven by a failure of available platforms to share our introspections, our stories, our fears. The Fear Doctor booth offers a space to open up to a stranger, as passersby are invited to share a fear and receive a free tailored typewritten philosophical prescription from a certified Fear Doctor.

 

Friday Noon, Pool Area--presented by Embark Gallery

Carolina Magis Weinberg

The Air Within

This project consists of a materialized relocation of air: from inside the artist's lungs into the multiple soft plastic earths, themselves contained in a swimming pool full of water. Air, earth, water, all holding up, all transferring from body to body. This will be an evolving installation, where 76 globes will be slowly inflated and thrown into the pool. The performance will begin at 12pm on Friday, April 28th and will finish when the transferal of air into all the globes is complete. 

 

Courtyard, Friday and Sunday afternoon,  presented by Embark Gallery

Tamara Suarez Porras

Seven of Swords (Reversed)

Seven of Swords, Reversed is a collaborative performance with Tamara Suarez Porras. Participants experience a one-on-one tarot reading with the artist, an exchange that develops intimacy and empathy between them both. The reading concludes with a photographic portrait, photographed by the artist, another exchange and documentation of the shared experience.

 Participants are invited to sign up for individual time slots each 20 minute. 

 

Friday Evening, Pool Area

Tra Bouscaren

Video Projections

Incorporating found materials and monumental Styrofoam sculpture Bouscaren programs interactive video-mapped environments which envelop material substrates into a video bath built out of live surveillance feeds taken from within the space of exhibition.  Orphaned objects form the base of his fundamentally speculative practice from which he renders material artifacts of toxicity and illness as forms of abstract, video-soaked spectacle. 

 

Friday Evening, Courtyard

Guta Galli

Entangling

An interactive performance that explores the power, vulnerability and general ambiguities surrounding the idea of human connection. This durational piece will involve the active participation of viewers as performers, who will be involved in several situations that will play with intimacy, physical and emotional boundaries, tension, discomfort and affection.

Saturday Evening, Pool Area, presented by RSF Projects

Paula Morales and Hadar Kleiman

Mirage

Projections play across the water’s surface and glint across sculptural façades, the faux environment beckons viewers into a walk-in oasis diorama. Experiential at its core, the work suggests you stay a while, lounge around, bask in the sensorial, and relax into a new way of seeing art.

 

 

Sunday Noon, Courtyard

Ramekon O’Arwisters

Crochet Jam

Ramekon O’Arwisters is a San Francisco-based social-practice artist who creates collaborative, community-based art projects infused with folk-art traditions. During his Crochet Jams, participants become physically connected with one another through the processes of crocheting free-form, organic-shaped soft sculpture from strips of clothing. No attempt is made to dictate the creativity process and there is no focus on a finished product. All materials and basic lessons in crochet techniques will be provided. No prior knowledge is necessary. This free event is from noon to 3pm.

 

Sunday Afternoon, Courtyard, presented by the Asian American Women Artists Association

Susan Almazol

The Warrior

A performance that pays homage to a Bataan Death March survivor as he is dying. Few know about the forced 65-mile march during World War II of Filipino and American soldiers by the Japanese where some 5,00o to 12,000 soldiers died. The performance includes poetry, live Taiko drumming and three multi-generational women artists, and provokes questions about Asian and American history and what inspires the will to live.
