The objects Terry Adkins has transformed into sculpture for Darkwater grow by one on Feb. 6 with the addition of Sherman Flemings body.
As we mentioned in our last issue (Upcoming, Current, Jan. 16), Terry Adkins current Arthur Ross Gallery show, Darkwater, is billed as a recital in four dominionssculpture, prints, documents and music.
Two of those dominions meet on Thursday, Feb. 6, when Washington-based performance artist Sherman Fleming joins the Lone Wolf Recital Corps for Titan, a musical/human-sculptural tribute to the life and work of W.E.B. DuBois at the Institute for Contemporary Art.
Fleming has spent more than two decades investigating body gesture as a form of sculpture through a series of performances titled States of Suspense. And if youre curious about what forms Flemings performance will take this time, you will just have to remain in a state of suspense until Feb. 6.
TITAN: 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6, in Tuttleman Auditorium, Institute of Contemporary Art, 118 S. 36th St. Admission free.
