The Annex Theatre and Gallery
419 E. Oliver St. Unit 2W
February 6 - March 6 2019
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 6 at 7 pm
PARTS&LABOR is the debut visual/performing arts show at the Annex Theater. We are opening our interpretation of a "white cube" gallery in the established non-profit performing arts space with grants from STEW and The Baltimore Community Foundation. Artists were asked to respond to the concept of "Labor." The call was met with entries addressing capitalism, commuting, artistic process, workers' rights, childbirth, and light-hearted kvetching about the day jobs one ends up working with a BFA. Participating visual artists/collectives include:
COLIN BENJAMIN with JOHN BYLANDER
The reception will begin at 7 PM on Saturday, February 6th followed by a video screening by Robby Rackleff and a 16mm film screening by Gina Carducci and Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore (Author: That's Revolting! Queer Strategies for Resisting Assimilation, Nobody Passes, and So Many Ways to Sleep Badly). The screenings will be followed by live perfomances by the curator (Michael Farley), Lexie Macchi, Anna Jilongco, Valeska Populoh, Maggie Burke, Jane Vincent, Elizabeth Thamm (of Club Lyfestile), La Hostess (Laure Drogoul and Paul Baroody) and Copycat Theater members Pilar Díaz with Monica Mirabile, Hoesy Corona with Alex D'Agostino, Sam Shea, and Person.
The closing reception will be held at 7PM on Saturday, March 6th with performances TBA.
