Kemper Live: Assemble

April 13 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us for Kemper Live, where we celebrate current exhibitions "Kahlil Robert Irving: Archaeology of the Present" and "Santiago Sierra: 52 Canvases Exposed to Mexico City's Air" with music, performance, and art-making. Inspired by Irving's layered assemblages that explore our relationship to the city street as a site of collective gathering and Sierra's gridded visualization of the accumulated toxicity of environmental conditions, Kemper Live: Assemble asks how performance as public assembly holds the potential for action.

Performances include the Carr Lane Visual & Performing Arts Drum Line and Spirit Squad, new works by Big Muddy Dance Company, poetry readings by Tracy Stanton and Maurice Tracy, and a sound installation by composer and electronic musician Christopher Douthitt.

Enjoy family-friendly art-making inspired by artist Kahlil Robert Irving’s ceramic tiles. Poetry readings contain references to drugs, sex, and violence.

Free and open to the public.
