In honor of Irrational Exhibits’ 10th anniversary, 19 performance works will take place throughout LACE’s gallery, in artist-constructed installations that function as the settings for their evolving actions. Composed of diverse themes and esthetics, all the works explore a physical engagement with the body and materials in front of the audience in real time. Although the performances will be happening simultaneously they not the same length, giving the audience the option to move through the spaces, circulate, browse, return, or spend immersive time at their own pace, thus creating a degree of shared experience between viewer and maker in process. Irrational Exhibits celebrates works that embrace unpredictability, the messiness of biological and organic processes and materials, and the chaos of our times.
In addition performances from previous Irrational Exhibits will be presented alongside new works, by both repeating artists and those new to the project, thus providing an historical perspective and future directions.
During the week following the one night performances, the installations and video works will remain on view, as well as an ongoing performance by Lara Salmon, culminating on June 10th from 4-6PM.
Support is provided by The Metabolic Studio, A direct charitable activity of the Annenberg Foundation.
