CLARK ART INSTITUTE HOSTS OUTDOOR PERFORMANCE
COMPLEMENTING ORACLE BONES INSTALLATION
Williamstown, Massachusetts—On Saturday, July 29, the Clark Art Institute hosts Together, an outdoor performance presented by choreographer Kim Brandt. Together is created in dialogue with both Elizabeth Atterbury’s exhibition Oracle Bones and the Clark’s natural setting. The performance begins at 6:30 pm on the Clark’s Fernández Terrace.
Using movement to explore the multitude of ways in which we are both interdependent and independent, Together considers how the relationship between time, space, scale, and motion inform our understanding of place. Six performers (Martita Abril, Courtney Cooke, Greer Dworman, Lydia Okrent, Anna Adams Stark, and Nora Stevens) navigate the Clark’s outdoor landscape in a kinetic meditation on expansions and contractions, closeness and distance, and beginnings and ends.
Kim Brandt has presented her work at a number of museums, including the Museum of Modern Art PS1 in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, and the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas, among others. She has received fellowships and residencies from Princeton University (Princeton, New Jersey), New York Film Academy, and ISSUE Project Room (New York)—to name a few—and her work has received support from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Jerome Foundation, and Brooklyn Arts Fund. Brandt received a MFA in Sculpture from Tyler School of Art at Temple University and a BA from Hampshire College.

This project is supported, in part, by a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant.
