Effort Economy Opening Reception

  • First Friday, February 1, 2019  |  6-9 PM

Join us as we celebrate the opening of Effort Economy featuring the works of Julie Favreau, Raul Gonzalez, R. Eric McMaster, Ronny Quevedo, and Anne Wallace.

Reflecting on dancer and theorist Rudolf Laban’s ideas related to effort and movement the exhibition features artists whose work utilizes choreography in some form. Movement and the body are essential to the works in the exhibition, with artists considering the design and sequencing of movement as it relates to dance, sports, daily life, eroticism, and more. Other ideas presented through this exhibition include internal rhythm and time as forces we connect our bodies to, and our drive for interconnectivity to one another in both the material and immaterial world.

While down here you can check out all of the other happenings in the Blue Star Arts Complex and grab some dinner.
