Los Angeles-based visual artist Erika Vogt has convened a bevy of like-minded collaborators including Math Bass, Shannon Ebner, Lauren Fisher, Dylan Mira, Silke Otto-Knapp, Adam Putnam, and Nora Slade, to imagine a new iteration of her Artist Theater Program: an exhibition conceived for a black box theater.
The layered quality of Vogt’s moving image work expands in this project into the dynamism of physical space. Set at Roulette, an Art Deco gem in Brooklyn, this live exhibition plays with the mechanics of the theater, unfolding in an atmospheric continuum where artworks move, collide, and overlap in time as well as space. The intimacy of works and players on stage bridges visual arts and theater, where all elements of the performance are collaged across poetry, images, shapes, and actions. Combining performers, artworks, sets, props, songs, and lighting effects, the Artist Theater Program establishes an in-between space where roles and identities lack clear definition and resist simplification.
