Interactive Exhibits and Installations (Mini-Fest, American Dance Legacy Initiative)
Friday, February 28, 2014
10:00am - 10:00pm
Curated by Brown Public Humanities graduate students and Dancing Legacy, the Mini-Fest installations take full advantage of the Granoff Center, Brown University's interdisciplinary arts center dedicated to fostering innovation, research, collaboration, creativity, and education among the arts, humanities, and sciences. The building was designed by the New York-based architecture firm, Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The exhibits will be situated throughout the building and provide new perspectives on viewing and experiencing dance. Two of the installations are inspired by the work of American jazz master, Danny Buraczeski, curated by students from Central Falls High School under the direction of their master teacher Deanna Camputaro and Paul Margrave, a Brown University Public Humanities graduate student. By combining photographs, video, text and choreography, the students share their personal connection to Danny Buraczeski and his repertory. Two exhibits explore “Dance, Memory, and the Oral Tradition” showcasing ADLI’s archives and programming. The final exhibit is presented in partnership with ASaP: Artists and Scientists as Partners.
The Exhibits and Installations are part of the ADLI MiniFest 2014 program. http://adli.us/ ADLI Mini-Fest is part of Widening the Circle: Intersections of Art, Science and Community, presented by FirstWorks and American Dance Legacy Initiative, in collaboration with Artists and Scientists as Partners, Brown University, and Mark Morris Dance Group.
