Backstage: Margaret Tedesco

All summer long, as part of the exhibition Stage Presence, we’re hosting LIVE performances in a specially commissioned fourth-floor performance space created by Tucker Nichols. Totally awesome artist lineup, and we’re posting rehearsal pix plus performance videos every week.

Margaret Tedesco’s accessories:

Tedesco’s Catalogue#3 dress

Tedesco’s wigs for Cameo. Nights, and night.

Tedesco works across performance, installation, and photography. In her weekend appearances she draws on and restages her 2005 work Cameo, in which a woman translates feature-length films with the sound off for an audience who cannot see the images. For Thursday evening’s Catalogue #3, she abandons the film for the inventory.

We’ll have video next week! More info. Follow the series.

Check out this week’s performances: Thursday, July 26, 7:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, July 28 and 29, 3 p.m. Free with museum admission.
