GRIN: A Multimedia Gallery Installation [Closing Reception]

GRIN, a multimedia gallery installation, created by Britt Whitmoyer Fishel in collaboration with Noelle Dave, Kaitlin Davis, and Lydia Patselas, with music from James Reindeer, and presented by The Bakery Atlanta, will culminate July 6-July 13, 2019.

In a continuation of research that has been examining the objectification and animalization of women throughout our society, GRIN takes a turn toward the physical attributes that play part in a woman’s historical path of navigating “a man’s world,” while asking questions about choice, survival, and rebellion. How do women adjust, re-adjust, break the mold, and forge ahead under vexatious situations?

GRIN will take shape in a series of three abstract dance films, in addition to a polaroid compilation, and vintage advertising, among other elements. A live performance will take place during the opening and closing receptions in the gallery.

As a community Screendance component of the installation, GRIN invites attendees to film a live performance on their phones during the opening and closing receptions. Participants can experiment with movement for the camera in a relaxed environment. All footage collected will be edited into a community dance film, giving filmmaker credits to everyone who participates. The final film will be shared with the community.
