Joanna Malinowska: Fieldwork

FRI, Apr 13, 2012
7:30 pm

Lower Gallery

Joanna Malinowska’s sculptures, performances, and video-based projects are often inspired by her interest in cultural anthropology. She has said that she considered becoming an anthropologist, but “eventually decided that what interested [me] was not so much the research that aspires to scientific objectivity, but rather the sense of relativity of a cosmic order of one’s own culture in comparison to other possible systems.” Join Malinowska and the Hungry March Band as they stage a performance in which two marching bands converge. This program, inspired by composer Charles Ives, will re-imagine how rituals are charged with meaning in different contexts, from transcendentalism to the Native American Ghost Dance.

Free with Museum admission, which is pay-what-you-wish on Fridays from 6–9 pm; there are no special tickets or reservations.
