Constance DeJong & Tony Oursler: Relatives

Relatives

Archived Event

No Longer Showing.

Artists and long-time collaborators Constance DeJong and Tony Oursler return to The Kitchen to restage their performance Relatives after a hiatus of more than twenty years. Originally commissioned by the ICA Boston in 1988 and performed at The Kitchen in 1989, Relatives combines spoken text and video in a duet between a television and a performer. Two worlds of storytelling (electronic and oral) deliver a genealogy of family members who belong to a visible yet overlooked group: history’s bit players; their collective story is traced through a succession of appearances in painting, photography, the movies, television, and video games. Organized by Matthew Lyons.

March 23–24, 8pm
Tickets $20 General / $15 Members
