MPA: Interrupting the Grid

MPA, DAY 4: Grid Exercise + Camera, 2013

MPA: Interrupting the Grid   
Sunday, April 10, 2016, 5pm, Otis Forum | Free

MPA is an artist who has explored a range of meditative, durational, theatrical, and actionist modes of performance to engage "the energetic" as a potential material in live work. In Interrupting the Grid, she will discuss experiences with the Viewpoints grid exercise and her latest installation THE INTERVIEW: Red, Red Future to invite an open discussion on notions of kinetic and unconscious collaboration. If, say, conceptions of gridded empire inform definitions for interruptive action, what rests in-between these seemingly posing opposites? What is outer limits? And does abstracting origin inflect a drive for journey? Please join for what is anticipated to be a dynamic and interactive event.

Enriched with ritual, MPA's performances and installations critically examine behaviors of power in individual and social spaces. She has proposed questions on the global arms race, patriarchy as governance, and the dysfunctional union of art with capitalist commodity. Her solo exhibition THE INTERVIEW: Red, Red Future is currently on view at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. The exhibition questions the colonial implications of possible past and future life on the planet Mars. MPA lives in Twentynine Palms, CA.
