Backstage: Cliff Hengst

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.

Preparations for Cliff Hengst’s Maybe:

Hengst is a San Francisco–based painter and performance artist. Here he presents a series of new and revisited solo works, including Stink Bomb, I Am a Tree and Elvis. Hengst’s pieces employ both wry and broad humor, zinging the audience with one-liners and also catching them in a warm embrace.

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

Check out this week’s performance: Thursday, August 9, 7:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, August 11 and 12, 3 p.m. Free with museum admission.
