The Lightning Speed of the Present: Kelly Hunter & Dan DeRosato
"Dan DeRosato and Kelly Hunter have been working together in performance art for 3 years. Coming from design based backgrounds, their collaborative pieces are often worked on aesthetically before concepts are formed, while picking up a fragmented narrative as the piece is developed. Both of their work deals with grief, loss, failure, intimacy, and the human condition. Dan works in printmaking, installation, and graphic design. Kelly works in printmaking, illustration, and installation. Together their work explores themes of disaster as well as growth." [source]
Durational Performance: 11am-8pm / Free
