EXHIBIT is a site-responsive participatory theatre experience in the form of an art gallery tour, designed to be re-adapted to fit each different gallery or museum setting. Small groups of audience members are led through the gallery on what initially seems like a straightforward tour. Then gradually, a fictional story emerges, both inspired by and in contradiction to the visual artwork.
EXHIBIT was developed through a 2016-2017 Water Residency through New Georges and premiered as a work-in-progress during Works on Water, a month-long, multi-disciplinary art event happening at 3LD Art & Technology Center in lower Manhattan during June 2017.
The version of EXHIBIT that was developed for Works on Water engages directly (yet playfully) with the water-focused visual art on display, exploring themes of memory, reflection, motion, stillness, and what exactly happens in the instant when water turns into ice.

EXHIBIT has been many years in the making (and future incarnations are on the way!). Much gratitude to my early collaborators who helped develop this project, including Nick Lewis, Marissa Molnar, Bubba Weiler, and Carl Wiemann.
