The closing event will feature two EAF16 artist performances:
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.
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.
