December 8th, 9th & 15th, 2011
SOHO20 Chelsea gallery is proud to present the third annual SAVOIR-FAIRE performance art series in 2011. The gallery will host new performance works by; The Baltimore Experimental Dance Collective, Erica Magrey and BFFAEAETDDUP for three different evenings in December.
On December 8th, 9th and 15th never-before-seen live performances will take place at SOHO20 as part of this invitational performance series. Venture into the ethereal space of movement and light with the Baltimore Experimental Dance Collective as they explore the polarities of emotion we experience both physically and intellectually. We will travel to intergalactic terrains with Erica Magrey as she introduces an array of characters whose own dazzling costumes become the obstacle they must traverse. And last but not least we will tune in to the celestial realm of the “collective google unconscious” with Giana Gambino and Rachel Steinberg of BFFAEAETDDUP as they use collected online data to discover what questions we are seeking answers to.
Please be aware that each performance is 20-30 minutes long and attendees should plan to arrive at SOHO20 at 8pm in order to experience the entire performance. A light reception will accompany each event for visitors to enjoy.
Savoir-Faire began in 2009 as a platform for performance artists to realize new projects with the support of an arts institution. Each year a selection of regional artists are invited to work with curator and gallery director Jenn Dierdorf, to create new works for a live audience. Through Savoir-Faire, SOHO20 draws out the playful, experimental, and powerfully delicious aspects of artistic inquiry to reassess and redefine our perceptions about art, life, and the roles of women in each. SOHO2O Gallery Chelsea is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 promoting the work of women artists and serving the community through public events.
