Coming to visual arts via dance, Maren Hassinger will present Women’s Work (2006), a meditative performance in which she and others repetitively manipulate newspaper, alluding to sewing, knitting, and other forms traditionally labeled women’s work.
Radical Presence: Black Performance in Contemporary Art is organized by the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston.
The exhibition is supported by generous grants from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts and the patrons, benefactors and donors to CAMH’s Major Exhibition Fund. The catalogue accompanying the exhibition is made possible by a grant from The Brown Foundation, Inc.
The Walker Art Center’s presentation is made possible by generous support from Angela and Tom Wicka.
