Backstage: Richard T. Walker

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.

Richard T. Walker rehearsing in the gallery yesterday for the speed and eagerness of meaning (longer longing version):

Walker’s meditative works combine spoken language, original music compositions, video, and photography to focus on the relationships among humans, language, and the environment. For this piece, Walker will perform in tandem with his film the speed and eagerness of meaning, adding another dimension to a work that explores the intersection of human consciousness and the natural world.

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

Check out this week’s performances: Thursday, August 30, 7:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, September 1 and 3, 3 p.m. Free with museum admission.
