Parkour by Heart: Setting a Performative Frame

With Rosa Barba

TA: Neil Sanzgiri

Runs from 6:30 – 9:30pm


In this exhibition, we observe the journey from cinema to another kind of film, the materialization of a filmic ontology into a hyper-space whose nature and limits remain to be defined. The results are experiments of expanded time-based forms into sculptural objects or speculations. Starting from a base reference point of research, whether an enticing piece of archived material or an enigmatic cultural artifact, students expand their practices through a form of artistic parkour. Grappling with questions of how to navigate image sound and narrative, this one-night-only group show is the result of the semester-long process from Setting a Performative Frame and Intersecting Fact and Fiction, a class taught by visiting artist Rosa Barba.

Join us for an opening reception on Saturday May 7th, at 7:00 PM.
