Nora Schultz: River

Oct 21–22

Floor Three, Susan and John Hess Family Theater

Calder: Hypermobility features an expansive series of performances and events, bringing contemporary artists into dialogue with Alexander Calder as they interplay their own disparate practices with his innovations. For her contribution, artist Nora Schultz has created a new piece in three parts.

Schultz’s practice spans sculpture, installation, photography and performance, and often repurposes found materials in her work in order to generate new meaning. In this project, she focuses our attention toward the river, both a river she recently encountered and filmed in the Swiss Alps, and the Hudson River flowing past the museum just outside the window. Schultz has created an augmented nature documentary with the footage she captured, to be experienced in a three-dimensional environment with multiple projections and live performance.
