Performance @Print Center New York

Saturday, May 4, 2024

Organized in response to themes in Marie Watt’s work, Calling Back, Calling Forward presents an afternoon of programming that extends beyond the artist’s practice to explore personal histories, community engagement, and notions of place and belonging.

From This Blanket: In this collaborative performance inspired by Marie Watt's sculpture Blanket Stories: Great Grandmother, Pandemic, Daybreak (2021), Kyoung eun Kang and sooim lee will explore cultural heritage, memory, and individual and collective experiences. Kang and lee—participants in the curatorial project The Faraway Nearby—will use pitch, breath, movement, and silence to weave a narrative that resonates with themes of family, care, and resilience.
