Presented in partnership with Hammer Museum and Show Box LA/we live in space as part of Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA

Sylvia Palacios Whitman Thursday, January 11 to Saturday, January 13, 2018 from REDCAT on Vimeo.

In collaboration with local performers, Palacios Whitman creates striking visual poetry with sculptural props that evoke dreamlike images of mummies, a large elephant trunk, giant hands, and a “human paper coil.” The program includes actions first carried out in the 1970s — exemplifying Sylvia Palacios Whitman’s unique performance style, in which surreal stage props and wearable art create a visual form of theater that combines a rich Latin American pictorial sensibility with the minimalism of New York’s dance scene of the 1970s. Known to performance art enthusiasts on the East Coast, this will be the first time one of Whitman’s performances will be staged on the West Coast.

Presentado en colaboración con Hammer Museum y Show Box LA/we live in space como parte del Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA

Con la colaboración de artistas locales, Palacios Whitman crea una llamativa poesía visual con pilares escultóricos que evocan imágenes de ensueño de momias, un gran tronco de elefante, manos gigantes, y una "bobina de papel humana." El programa incluye acciones llevadas a cabo en la década de 1970, que ejemplifican el estilo único de Sylvia Palacios Whitman, en el que escenarios surrealistas y vestimentas artísticas crean un teatro visual que combina una rica sensibilidad pictórica propia de Latinoamérica con el minimalismo de la escena de danza de Nueva York en los 70s. Reconocida por entusiastas de las artes vivas en la costa este, esta será la primera vez que Whitman se presente en la costa oeste.
