Holly Bass & Maps Glover Present: Pretending to be a Rock
June 20, 2019 at 6pm
Sherman Fleming and Holly Bass return to DCAC for The Black Overlay, an exhibition and a series of performances. In 1997, Bass witnessed Fleming’s iconic performance art work Pretending to be a Rock in DCAC’s black box theater. Bass will re-perform two of Fleming’s early performances, inverting the gender dynamic and exploring how the visual presence of a female body impacts the perception of masculine actions. The exhibition also includes Fleming’s ongoing series, Infiinite Desire, a selected group of collage-based figurative abstractions.
