Denver and the College of Arts & Media celebrate Performance Art Week with live performance at the Emmanuel Art Gallery on March 1st and 2nd. A special viewing of video art and film will be projected on the Daniels & Fisher Clock Tower during the evening of March 1st.
Live on Tuesday, March 1, there will be three special performances at the Emmanuel Art Gallery:
3:30 Heather Sincavage a brittleness (gallery back patio)
4:00 Gregg Deal with the Dead Pioneers Bad Indian
4:30 John Haworth, Senior Executive Emeritus of the Smithsonian National Museum of American Indian
Following Sincavage's performance on the gallery back patio, Gregg Deal will perform his provocative piece, Bad Indian, with the Dead Pioneers. Deal's work challenges, questions, instigates, and sometimes even laughs at history, stereotypes, racism, and popular culture, as he deftly weaves narratives through his performance. His performance will be followed by a talk from John Haworth, Senior Executive of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian.
This event is free and open to the public. View event details here.
Following the Emmanuel Art Gallery performances, audience members are invited to visit the D & F Tower, located at 16th and Arapahoe Street in downtown Denver, to view the work of 13 artists projected on to the side of the tower. Work featured will include that of CAM students, faculty, alumni and Jeff Becker, a world renowned performance artist who visited CAM the previous week to conduct performance art workshops.
Art will be projected outdoors, on the clock tower, March 1 from 5:30pm – midnight. View event details here.
On Wednesday, March 2, the Emmanuel Art Gallery will feature live performance art from a variety of Denver based artists, including CAM alum Tiffany Matheson, CAM Associate Dean Theo Edmonds, and regular Emmanuel Art Gallery exhibitor, Tobias Fike.
