"Wide Angle" performance installation at Wells
02-03-2012 - Interdisciplinary exhibit features the collaborative work of professors and students.
Wells College is pleased to welcome the public to a multifaceted, interdisciplinary performance work featuring input from and live performances by Wells faculty, staff and students. The exhibit, titled “Wide Angle,” will take place at 5 p.m. on February 3, in the String Room Art Gallery and the Faculty Parlors of Main Building on the campus of Wells College. This event is free, and all are invited.
Wide Angle examines different views of the world from a classroom in Washington State to a kava circle in Hawai’i to a family folk dance in Hungary to the very close campus of Wells College. It visually, interactively and aurally explores items and people from views that are up close and very, very far away. The exhibit features photography, 2-D and 3-D art and film. Live performances include dance, theatre and music.
“I wanted to look at ‘everyday’ activities such as eating, talking and love from different angles,” says Associate Professor of Theatre Siouxsie Easter. “What do we see when we are in the middle of the circle as opposed to what when we are standing on the outside?”
Wide Angle is the result of collaboration between Easter, Professor of Dance Jeanne Goddard, Technical Director Joe DeForest and Professor of Anthropology Ernie Olson, along with contributing student artists Marie Angus ’12, Keegan Evans ’15, Mary Losurdo ’14, Jeremiah Miller ’14, Alexi Montgomery ’13 and Claudia Nolan ’12.
