LabBodies presents Recharging the Canon

Free, advance registration requested

LabBodies, a Baltimore-based laboratory for performance art, brings new works created for the Walters the museum’s Sculpture Court and Ancient World galleries. These spectacular and colorful interventions connect ancient art with contemporary questions about race, religion, gender, and identity.

This one night, two person performance features new work by multimedia artists Hoesy Corona and Ada Pinkston in response to the collections housed in the galleries.  Pinkston’s From God’s Name to No Name will lead viewers in a ritualized procession through the galleries, while Corona’s Nobodies Gala will act as a quinciañera celebration, or fifteenth anniversary, of his longest ongoing performance Hoesy, and highlight the museum’s Mexican earthenware collection.
