June 23 | 5 PM
Maria Hupfield will invite three Lethbridge artists, Cindy Baker, Tanya Doody, and Mandy Espezel to join her in a public platform for collaborative engagement and art-performance. Throughout the day, the artists will present new ideas and develop the project within the exhibition, The One Who Keeps on Giving. Their public performance will take place during the exhibition’s opening reception at 5 PM on Friday, June 23. Characteristic of Hupfield’s live interdisciplinary performances, she aims to craft a visually rich and multi-sensory atmosphere for an active exchange of ideas across cultures, disciplines, and borders. Performance Lab was informed by collaborative approaches to sustaining trust and support in the Brooklyn Performance Art community, one which Hupfield has contributed to for the past 7 years. This performance series was originally developed as a three day project in Montréal at Galerie Hugues Charbonneau, 2013.
