The Sculpture Center’s Summer Performances Act Out

The Sculpture Center’s multiple summer performances, a first for the annual W2S (Window to Sculpture Emerging Artist) series, have a focus on women’s work. Visit our website for dates, times and places.

Whitney Huber and collaborator Joan Giroux perform in the Sculpture Courtyard during the opening of Gary Blowers: Active Vibrations.Their Shift employs low-tech kinetic props to create a day-to-night workday cycle of mundane yet beautiful labor. Elizabeth Emery and Corrie Slawson explore the downside of this labor, the wage disparity between men and women, with Making Money the Harder Way: get used to it, make it stretch, an all day Uptown Cleveland performance that ends in the Main Gallery with a Quittin’ Time Happy Hour. Susan Byrnes’s Mending is Better than Ending, again highlighting women at work,is a community construction project.

Bucking the trend, R Ferris, who is highly interested in viewer participation, presents a startling look at studio practice. Finally, Jimmy Kuehnle’s spontaneous performances draw attention to our surrounding neighborhoods all summer.
