ICOSA Collective presents "Transmissions" opening day
ICOSA Collective presents "Transmissions," curated by Terra Goolsby & Tammie Rubin.
There is disruption. We cannot physically interact, connect, or share experiences, so where does that leave the act of performance? "Transmissions" is a platform of investigation: What’s performance without the expectations of the traditional “live” shared experiences? How to create intimacy and connection mediated through limited audiences, projected, and virtual transmissions? Is it possible to trigger an emotive response through distance? By removing the audience from making, what will artists explore?
Artists Terra Goolsby & Tammie Rubin posed the questions and the following artists answered the call: Urethra Burns, Veronica Ceci, Antonio Cueto, Chloe Curiel, Michael Anthony García, Jay Roff-Garcia, Ryan Hollaway, Delilah Rose Knuckley, Yuliya Lanina, Brendan Lay, Andrea Muñoz Martinez, Pamela Martinez, Gesel Mason Performance Projects, Teresa Moralez, Jessamyn Leigh Plotts, Alexandra Robinson, LaRissa Rogers, Ivy Roots, and St Celfer. "Transmissions" is an exhibition of diverse concepts and responses that encompass “performance.”
The exhibition will remain on display through January 3. There will be special performances on December 4, 11, 12, 18, 31, and January 3.
