luciana achugar and Jennie MaryTai Liu’s curatorial statement:
As we considered how to curate a group of performing artists, we looked at what the two of us had in common in terms of our interests and what drives us to make work, and we decided not to invite artists who we simply “liked”. Our curatorial approach is to look at the philosophy or ideology that drives artists to make work, and we invited artists that seem invested deeply in their work as a stance in the world, artists who seem directly concerned with choreographing their personal politics. This eclectic group of artists work with dance, theater, text, design, music and sound in varying degrees of focus. We hope that laying these distinct artist’s works alongside each other will inspire a conversation about how politics and aesthetics are entwined, how differing mediums convey subject matter, and how an artist’s worldview is reflected and even created through their process and work.
