Jamison Edgar & Philip Wesley Gates: Freshworks Presentation
October 4, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Kelly Strayhorn Theater
In a first-time collaboration, theater artist Philip Wesley Gates and CMU School of Art MFA Candidate Jamison Edgar trace the way queer lives and memories travel between archival storage, digital systems, and the human body. Philip Wesley Gates’s work as a director, performance maker, and critical writer uses performance to activate collective understandings of connection and care. Jamison Edgar, a project-based visual artist, offers space in his own work to explore the potentialities of an embodied abstract-queer orientation. Collectively, the artists remix strategies from their respective trained disciplines to create genre-bending experiences.
This in-progress performance is part of KST’s Freshworks Residency program, which provides artists with space, resources, and support to explore new ideas and launch new projects. Presented in conjunction with Unblurred: First Fridays on Penn, sponsored by the Penn Avenue Arts Initiative, a joint program of the Bloomfield Garfield Corporation.
