Performance: Mélodie Mousset and Zachary Sharrin, Some Parts are Limbs.
Starting promptly at 2pm, Melodie Mousset and Zachary Sharrin will invite the audience to a “performance class” that will use data and information about gender theory and climate change metaphorically in order to help the audience find a physical balance as they face the dynamics of a fast changing society and environment. Using their own bodies as a medium to convey information, they will combine movement, gesture, and voice to develop the visualization of data in a visceral way and encourage the audience to gain consciousness at a deeper level.
Panel Discussion: Explorations, Collaborations, Transformations: The Artist's Role in Raising Awareness about Climate Change
The panel discussion, immediately following the performance, is organized by ARTPORT_making waves. Participants include George Steinmann (artist & investigator Switzerland), Chuck Kopczak (California Science Center), Anne-Marie Melster (ARTPORT curator Spain), Corinne Erni (ARTPORT curator New York).
