PERFORMING & TRANSLATING OBJECTS & EACH OTHER
Thursday, March 3, 2016 5:00-7:00 p.m.
CU Art Museum
Please join us for a night of art, dance and performance.
As CU Art Museum’s artist-in-residence, Janelle Iglesias sees her role as a ‘creative troublemaker’ and catalyst for unlikely connections. As part of her residency she is collaborating and corroborating with classes including Jeanne Quinn’s graduate ceramics seminar, Firth MacMillan’s intermediate ceramics class and Erika Randall’s graduate choreography seminar.
For this event, we will showcase recent projects by and between graduate dancers and artists as well as a collaborative performance and installation created by undergraduate ceramics students and graduate dancers.
This showcase within Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket, including documentation of the performances, will be on view through March 10, 2016.
Fair warning: there is a chance you will be danced with or get dirty. Space is limited.
ROUGH SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
5:15-6:10 pm dancers perform solo works
6:20-6:30pm performance with dancers and intermediate ceramics class
EVEN A SIMPLE (EXCHANGE) CAN TURN INTO A COMPLEX RACKET: THE TRANSLATION PROJECT
Visual artists in Quinn’s graduate ceramic seminar paired up with dancers in Randall’s graduate choreography seminar and exchanged studio visits. Each was asked to create a new work in response to their partner’s practice. Constraints were given to the participants: two weeks to create this project, a ten foot radius of space to move within and a square pedestal to present artworks.

EVEN A SIMPLE (OBJECT) CAN TURN INTO A COMPLEX RACKET: SLIP/TUMBLE- A PERFORMATIVE INSTALLATION & IMPROVISATION
As part of Firth MacMillan’s slip casting section of intermediate ceramics, students were charged with making molds and multiples, creating catalytic objects for the dancers to improvise with.
Additional molds and objects produced by the class will be integrated into Iglesias’s unfolding installation in the coming weeks.
