A 3-channel video installation of a durational dance, CROWDS investigates the choreography of crowd typologies and the slippages between them. It articulates the choreographic register embedded in our political discourses and polemics, reflecting what is amassed and what is lost as we gather and disperse.
Opening Reception: Thursday, November 7th; 6pm-8pm
Special Event: Thursday, November 21st at 7pm
A conversation between Sarah Friedland and Tess Takahashi on the choreographies, documentation, and politics of crowds.
