Playing dress up, singing karaoke, getting a tattoo: it is all possible in the gallery. From January 18th– February 9th Sierra Nevada College is hosting an exhibition entitled Light On Your Feet: A Study in Play, Participation, and Collaboration. The show is a month long exploration of improvisation, performance, movement, and synergy in which everyone is invited to come in and use the space. Curated by Autumn Beck, the show includes artwork and inspiration from: Jahan Khajavipour, SCTV, Eve Fowler, Book Club, Jason Gomez, Justin Vivian Bond, Christine Finley, Dawn Kasper and Jason Akira Somma.
“Chloë Flores effectively explores how an existing public platform embedded with it’s own system for individual representation and identity can be used as an art space and for cultural production. Chloë Flores has not been conceived as a place for the display, presentation and exhibition of artworks per se, but rather as an alternative public space for cultural production, critical gestures, artistic practice, discourse, and exchange; and by extension of being situated within the structure of Facebook, Chloë Flores provides a place for the exploration of collective authorship in place-making, the notions surrounding identity as it relates to social networking, and the performative gestures engendered in self-representation.”
