This exhibition takes Mount Tremper Arts as both a point of convergence and departure for artists engaging with creative disciplines outside their own. Within MTA’s studio and surrounds, different types of performances inform each other, and conversations about their contingencies and commonalities emerge. In these works, the idea of “performance” is itself a site of mutual investigation: photographers reveal everyday choreography; sound artists explore listening as performance; writers stage events to complicate their texts; and visual artists parse the somatic languages of dance and sleep. Through collaborations and curious analysis, Meeting Point makes explicit the arcs and instances of contact constellating artistic disciplines together.
Performances and Video throughout the day by Charles Atlas, Xavier Cha, Jen Rosenblit with Spencer Yeh, and Jacques Louis Vidal.
