Artist Talk: Cassils

Please join us for an artist talk with Walter Phillips Gallery exhibiting artist Cassils in conjunction with the solo exhibition, Movement curated by Jacqueline Bell and Carol A. Stakenas. The lecture will precede the Opening Reception for the exhibition taking place from 5 pm -8 pm.

Movement exists in the interstices of performance, photography, sound and light. The title references the sequential stages of a musical score, as well as social, political, physiological, and somatic movements. This installation is the first in a series of new works which translate Human Measure, Cassils’ first contemporary dance, into a series of visceral, immersive, visual and sonic installations.
