Standing Room Only: Episode One - A series of seven performances.
October 25th, 2012
Artist Michael Barrett is a former U.S. Marine, cancer survivor, and college athlete. Addressing gender subjectivity, disjointedness among identity, subtracting the ego, repetition over time, tendencies during peak and rest, and patterns in relation to action, Barrett's work is often site specific using the body as a metaphor for larger social, political, and personal issues.
You can expect to find him negotiating situations in which his corporeality and gender are pushed to extremes as he navigates across a number of self-imposed obstacles.
