Community Performance Action
Co-Facilitated with Alexis Iammarino
June 10, 2018 | 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
Join interdisciplinary artist Katie Kehoe and Lead Educator Alexis Iammarino for a community performance/action in the CMCA courtyard. The event is part of Kehoe’s current project, Provisions for Buoyancy, a series of performances along the eastern seaboard that explore the projected impact of climate change and the adaptive reuse of materials. The public is invited to engage in and observe the performance.
The event at CMCA concludes Kehoe’s four-day residency and a roster of public events and engagements in Rockland, Maine, hosted by The Steel House, The Apprenticeshop, the Island Institute, and CMCA.
Kehoe conceived Provisions for Bouyancy as a series of performances/actions in which she wears a wetsuit and carries a body-board while walking for extended periods through areas that would be flooded if the sea level were to rise by six feet. Between May 26–June 15, 2018, she is performing at least once in each state and province situated along the east coast from Washington, D.C. to Halifax, Nova Scotia.
