To kick off the spring season of Sunday Service, curator Jess Pretty invites artists to respond to the notion of critical desire and the exploration of radical thriving as a methodology for taking up spaces we claim to reside in. Featuring artists Trinity Dawn Bobo, Taylor Crichton, DJ JCLEF, Amanda Krische, and Evelyn Sanchez
Sunday, March 4th, 2018 | 7:00pm | RSVP on fb HERE
Jess Pretty states, “i’m interested in rigorously interrogating pleasure as a way of living past survival, seeking other worlds and times and spaces for art. other possibilities for our delicate bodies to be present in performance. questioning how are we constantly evaluating the stakes involved in our work-making process. the labor of being unapologetic. i desire work rooted in the fantastic that helps formulate how to queer our own possibilities and modes of migration.”
About Sunday Service
Taking place the first Sunday of each month, a guest curator is invited to organize a salon style evening of cross-disciplinary performances and presentations that brings together a multiplicity of views around a singular prompt, such as a question, theme, or formal structure. Sunday Service centers works in progress, interdisciplinary endeavors, and diversity in format showcased in a lo-fi environment to foster the testing of ideas and critical discourse amongst peers.
Sunday Service is programmed by Stephanie Acosta and Alexis Wilkinson, Knockdown Center’s Director of Exhibitions and Live Art.
