Daniel Chase and Patricia Graham

Resonant Frequency: “I” As Numerous Shifts
217 W 18th Street, KCMO 64108

6:00 – 9:00 pm

Visual artists Daniel Chase and Patricia Graham’s upcoming installation, Resonant Frequency: “I” As Numerous Shifts, departs from the pair’s last collaborative exhibition (The Length of an Arc, the Closing of a Loop), and foregoes connections of time and the passing of a day to form an alignment between sight, sound, and architecture. They are emphasizing and literalizing the synesthetic melding of sound and color to enrich each component and arrange a composition that is built up from numerous perspectival shifts.


Produced by Johanna Winters and Benjamin Wills:

Narrow Witness
The Drugstore
3948 Main Street, KCMO 64111

Tonight only 8:00 – 9:00 pm

NARROW WITNESS is a puppet-figure performance and sound piece that challenges notions of conventional storytelling through a merging of puppetry, gesture, language, and ritual. Using marionettes, shadow puppets, human breath, and overhead projectors, this work questions the desire to be seen while declaring the bold validation of witnessing one another.

With puppeteering assistance from Alicia Kelly, Anne Luben, Alex Olsen, Melissa McGrath, Stevie Delgado, and Alexis Balaun. Sound design by Braden Young.
