A benefit organized by artist Irvin Morazan (BFA 2003 Photography), featuring original performances, videos and interventions aimed at challenging predominant perceptions of performance art. Morazan is receiving treatment for colon cancer; proceeds from the evening's events will go toward his treatment. Presented by the BFA Photography Department.
Influential poet and musician Gil Scott-Heron said, about his 1971 recording, "The Revolution Will Not be Televised," "The first change that takes place is in your mind. You have to change your mind before you change the way you live and the way you move . . . the thing that’s going to change people will be something that no one will ever be able to capture on film." Beyond voicing the soul of a generation, Heron is describing the ephemeral nature of any event, live act or performance and the attempt to record such performances, which always encounter a unique and transient audience.
Artists and performers include Daniel Bozhkov, Nathan Carey, Zachary Fabri, Devin Kenny, Seung-Min (Sing) Lee, Shaun Leonardo, Brandon Mathis, Irvin Morazan, Shana Moulton, Jacolby Satterwhite, Takeshi (Kata) Shingaki and Bryan Zanisnik.
The event and the audience will be recorded.
