A New Between | Jaimie Henthorn
This event has been canceled due to the Momentary’s response to COVID-19. Follow our updates.
Jaimie Henthorn initiates a site-specific performance duet with Nile H. Russell, interrogating the architecture of the Momentary, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, and the path in-between. During this durational multi-day performance along the trail, the duet traverses a new liminal zone, or a place out of time, between these monumental structures. It presents questions such as, where do we house art? and, can art be contained? What more will this exploratory journey ask, and reveal, about this new between?
Please meet in The Atrium at the Momentary for this performance.
