re:FRAME Dance exhibits the work and processes of six dance artists in solo dancemaking processes. Using Room 2 of the Front, the collective reframes the gallery experience by activating the space in different ways throughout the month-long exhibition while also sharing footage of their creative processes and outputs along the way. Each re:FRAME artist has been working across form, with inventive ways of collaborating across great distances, and through deep dives into personal and familial terrain.
Accompanying this exhibition, re:FRAME is hosting a weekend of workshops and community conversations at the Contemporary Arts Center and Beaubourg - EVERY BODY DANCE NOW. Information can be found here.
re:FRAME is movement-research collective of dance artists based in New Orleans--Ann Glaviano, Jeremy Guyton, Ryuta Iwashita, Meryl Murman, Yanina Orellana, and Shannon Stewart-- exploring alternative systems for artistic sustainability. re:FRAME artists formed a multi-year cohort for developing solo work and having been sharing their processes along the way.
