One of PICA’s most popular year-round programs gets TBA treatment with five festival Field Guides facilitated by visiting and local artists and scholars. Each small-group session creates context around contemporary performance and a particular artist’s social, political, cultural, and aesthetic influences through a pre-show workshop with lecture and discussion; group viewing of a performance; and post-show conversation over food and drink. Online artist interviews and other media supplement learning and engagement. Anyone curious about contemporary art is welcome. Limited to 25 participants.
Pre-Show Workshop: 7:00 PM at PICA (Note: We will walk the few blocks from PICA to the show – please contact the TBA Box Office with any accessibility concerns.)
Luke George & Collaborators Performance: 8:30 PM at Conduit
Post-Show Conversation: 9:30 PM at Conduit
About Field Guide: PICA’s education and public engagement series, Field Guide helps audiences discover and feel more informed about contemporary performance. Through facilitated workshops with visiting and local faculty, focused explorations of artist’s work, and connection with other festival-goers, Field Guide sessions include various combinations of pre-show workshops, social outings to performances, post-show conversations, and online interviews and media to more deeply contextualize the art and artists of our time.
