<![CDATA[EAF16 Exhibition Closing Celebration]]> Date: March 4, 2017

Join us for a final celebration before the Emerging Artist Fellowship 2016 Exhibition closes. We will honor our fantastic EAF16 artists Liene Bosquê, Travis Boyer, Andrew Brehm, Lea Cetera, Onyedika Chuke, Dylan Gauthier, Dmitri Hertz, Madeline Hollander, Olalekan Jeyifous, Lia Lowenthal, Dachal Choi & Mathew Suen, Galería Perdida, Sable Elyse Smith, Elizabeth Tubergen, and Bryan Zanisnik.

The closing event will feature two EAF16 artist performances:

2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Madeline Hollander’s “st, nd, rd, th, th, th…”
Taking over Socrates Sculpture Park’s five acres, current fellow Madeline Hollander presents a site-specific performance that draws choreographic inspiration from government-mandated public signage for safety protocols and “life-saving” techniques, such as the Heimlich maneuver posters, TSA pat-down, CPR, and airplane safety cards.

3:00 p.m.
Dylan Gauthier’s Kite Flying Performance 7
Gauthier’s two-part EAF16 project explores the aesthetic, conceptual, and transcendent aspects of flight, invention, and collaboration. The artist pairs his sculpture, Accidental Flight, based on the triangular-trussed kites built by Alexander Graham Bell, with a monthly publication of kite patterns (“scores”) for visitors to take away, assemble, and fly.

Start time: 2:00 pm

End time: 4:00 pm
