Performance for One
Untitled Theater Company No. 61

Performance for One is about memory, but even more so, it is about relationship between performer, audience member, and author. What is the responsibility of the audience member, and how is it felt different when there is only one audience member? Who is the story teller, the author or the performer? What happens to a memory that two people share after one of those people is gone?

Beyond the Paint
Kathleen Shaver

Beyond the Paint is Kathleen Shaver's first solo exhibition in NYC, featuring recent oil paintings and sculptures. Her large canvases are characterized by a thick build-up of pigment and richly textured surfaces. Ambiguous shapes, scratched markings and repeated patterns record a kind of primal searching as well as her love of paint. Written language or a code of communication seem possible in the random markings. Recognizable forms suggest themselves in mysterious or playful ways.
