The MAC will present "Cosmic to Corporeal: Contemporary Queer Performance Practices," curated by Liss LaFleur, artist, activist, and Assistant Professor of New Media Art at the University of North Texas.

"Cosmic to Corporeal" seeks to provide an intergenerational, and intersectional exchange of artists who are working to redefine the constructs of performance art and identity, specifically in relation to the queer body and the relationship of the body to technology. LaFleur has selected works from an international open call, including, among others, works by Zackary Drucker, Le’Andra LeSeur, Jonathan Molina-Garcia and Legacy Russell.

"Cosmic to Corporeal" expands notions of corporeality through performance, time-based, photographic, and sculptural works. Many of the works in this exhibition reach beyond the typical idea of performance art by prompting the viewer to engage or to consider everyday life as an act of performance. The viewer is encouraged to reflect on the body beyond a physical occupation of space and explore the charged border between ‘queered’ bodies and society, narratives and politics, or private selves and public views.

The opening reception will feature a performance by Jer’Lisa Devezin. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through November 9.
