Programmed by Dena Beard
Films and Q & A 5:30, Dance performances 7:30
MATRIX moves out of Gallery 1 with a L@TE program that brings the paintings of Silke Otto-Knapp to life. The evening commences with stage videos from the Pacific Film Archive collection, including a rare 1969 performance by Yvonne Rainer, followed by a Q & A with Otto-Knapp. Linda K. Johnson will perform three variations of Rainer’s Trio A, emphasizing the stage dynamics and gestural discipline of this seminal dance. The choreographer Flora Wiegmann concludes the night with a site-specific dance that reinterprets still-frame photography.
L@TE is made possible in part by the continued support of the BAM/PFA Trustees. Special thanks to our media sponsors, East Bay Express and San Francisco Bay Guardian.
The exhibition Silke Otto-Knapp / MATRIX 239 was conceived by Phyllis Wattis MATRIX Curator Elizabeth Thomas. The MATRIX Program at the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive is made possible by a generous endowment gift from Phyllis C. Wattis; The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; and the continued support of the BAM/PFA Trustees.
