Artist discussion (with LIFE=ART=LIFE participants Tehching Hsieh, Louise Liliefeldt, Richard Martel & Kristine Stiles)
Sunday February 22 2 pm
Karen Schreiber Gallery
Presented by Blank Slate with the support of 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art; participation of One Night Only sponsored by Fado Performance Inc.
Working collectively, the six members of One Night Only create individual performances on a common theme that act and react in relation to each other. The collective begins each project by agreeing on a common set of parameters. How each member chooses to fulfill, interpret or subtly circumvent the established rules becomes the basis of their developing dialogue, resulting in a multilayered and multi-perspectived approach.
