In Travis Preston’s performance, Martin Kersels’s installation serves as the site of an investigation using a variety of media—video, dance, text, and sound— to evoke a more intimate experience of the work. Preston, an internationally celebrated director of theater and opera, is artistic director of the Center for New Performance at CalArts.
This event is one in a series, Live on 5 Songs, curated by 2010 artist Martin Kersels, whose sculpture, 5 Songs, leads a double life as a stage for performance throughout the duration of the Biennial.
This event is free with museum admission; there are no special tickets or reservations required.
