November 1, 2019 – February 2, 2020
Click-clack! Crack! Percussion! features the works of New York-based artist Stefana McClure, who grew up in Northern Ireland, and Colombian artist Johana Moscoso. Both artists use movement, pressure, and striking motions in their art to represent their experiences with conflict and change.
In McClure’s Protest Jackets, rocks that have been wrapped in poetry and hurled at a wall fill the pockets of schoolchildren’s jackets to show innocence interrupted by violence. Moscoso’s ceramic tiles, imprinted with the shoeprints of dancers, show traces of the salsa and Colombia’s traditional folk dance, the cumbia. The encounter of two contrasting styles will engage audiences in an analysis how we negotiate divisions and transitions in society.
Meet the artists at a public reception held in conjunction with Family Weekend, Saturday November 2, 2019, 5:30-7. The evening will also include live performances and demonstrations. Light refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public of all ages.
