Live Performances will take place in the DANK Treffpunkt (1st floor gallery), where guests are encouraged to watch at any time during the session. Performances begin at 5:00pm and go until the artists are done painting (about 2 hours).
- Wednesday, May 4 – Sergio Gomez with Beate Axmann
- Tuesday, May 17 – Joanna Pinsky with Beate Axmann
About the performances:
Beate Axmann has invited two Chicago-based artists to collaborate with her on this dynamic exhibition. Each artist will begin with their own large canvas. During this performance, there will be several exchanges of the two canvases – meaning that each artist will add to the other artist’s work! This encounter will make visible the meaning of creative intervention, trust and respect between the artists, and the differences in their artistic expression.
Spectators will have the unique opportunity to experience a very special art encounter – certainly not one that you see every day.
