This multi-disciplinary evening will feature innovative creators responding to Matthew Ritchie’s The Demon in the Diagram. San Francisco-based Hope Mohr Dance will debut an original work, highlighting how bodily motion can physically extend the ideas inherent in the installation. Noted composer and clarinetist Evan Ziporyn will perform in the galleries and engage with the artist in a dialogue about their collaborative process.
