Performance #5: Are you going to sweat on my face, again?
Are you going to sweat on my face again? is a one-night-only performance by Holly Faurot and Sarah H. Paulson. This new work marks the institution of the Sequence System, an automatic cycling of multiple video components used to choreograph the breakdown of time and movement within a non-linear performance installation. This system is a development of the Surveillance System, a physical network of bodies controlling one another through movement, video, improvisation, and sound.
Poetry Reading #3
Jeremy Sigler and Christopher Stackhouse
Performance #4: Spirits Everywhere—A live film score for the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
Created by Evan Mazunik
Performance #3: Death of a Pack Rat
The performance Death of Pack Rat, created and executed by post-baccalaureate student Jennifer Mills, explores a new perspective on the nature of indulgence and its consequences. Calling upon the mundane action as a source of extravagance, the potential for opulence in the everyday is revealed, and excess is validated for the innocent.

Strand exhibits artists who create art within similar conceptual veins: they share an affinity for the hard within the soft, while exploring the potency of material. Similarly, the works share a poetic strength, which refers to both the physical environment and a broader sense of social connectivity.

Portrait of Success as a Young Failure
Portrait of Success as a Young Failure, curated by Bonnie Kate, addresses the redefinition of “success.” The show includes work from all over the United States, representing a sample of emergent painters, video artists, writers, sculptors, and photographers. In his novel A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, James Joyce lets the language of the story evolve with his main character, Stephen Dedalus, as Daedalus matures and attempts to dispense with his creative fetters. Likewise Portrait of Success as a Young Failure is an attempt to challenge our understanding of language and expression in the instance of “success” and its fertile ground for failure.
The Really? exhibition features three New York-based artists, Wayne Adams, Julie Allen, and Jill Magid, who represent to the viewer elements of everyday experience with a surprising unfamiliarity. As our capacity, and even desire, to distinguish between reality and invention rapidly continues to dissipate, the artists in this exhibition employ their work, in part, to test their perceptual and conceptual capacities by creating false realities. In a world, and art world, often dominated by high-tech experiences, Adams, Allen, and Magid respond with low-tech experiments that trick the mind as much as they fool the eye.
