Liliana Porter: THEM

Porter Event

Archived Event

No Longer Showing.

THEM, co-directed by artists Liliana Porter and Ana Tiscornia with music by Sylvia Meyer, questions the conventions through which we perceive things, and offers an invitation to recreate narratives beyond our expectations. Through a series of vignettes and with a great deal of humor, the performance addresses recurring themes from the “Porterian repertoire,” such as the simultaneity of the dissimilar, the concept of time and reality, and the proximity between the hilarious and the dramatic. THEM is making its theatrical debut in the United States at The Kitchen, and is presented by El Museo del Barrio, the SCAD Museum of Art, and The Kitchen.

This performance is part of Liliana Porter: Other Situations, organized by SCAD Museum of Art, and curated by Humberto Moro, SCAD Curator of Exhibitions, on view at El Museo del Barrio from September 13, 2018 through January 27, 2019. For more information about the exhibition, please visit El Museo's website.

October 25, 6pm and October 26, 7pm and 9pm. $25 General / $15 Members.
