Variations III, A History of the Idea of Progress, and Inbeneath
Visual Studies Workshop Gallery
31 Prince St.
Dec 1, 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

VSW has invited local performers, musicians, artists and filmmakers to create their own scores and perform them simultaneously. The audience is invited to walk through the space and interact with the sonic and visual landscape, while “leaving room for the use of unforeseen eventualities.”

A History of the Idea of Progress – Nando Alvarez-Perez, Project Space
Nando Alvarez-Perez presents a series of new photographs and drawings created using books, images, and objects from the archives of the VSW. Playing within the genres of collage, still life, and figure drawing the works mirror the complex history of the archive itself, generating non-linear connections across time and space and between high and low visual culture.

Inbeneath – Sasha Rose Herbert, VSW Gallery
A series of large scale photomontages exploring wonder, childhood memories, and embodied experiences. Inbeneath is Herbert’s MFA Thesis Exhibition.
