Reception following workshop
Come Here Frontier re-imagines Martha Graham's 1935 dance Frontier. Rhodes unravels the original work and plays at building ideal territories. There's a ritual for worrying, lots of optimistic dance moves and finally a collective daydream.
The Eight-Hour Work Day is part of Hours and Minutes, in which three artists – one per day – are invited to use the Southern Exposure gallery space for eight hours of continuous public performance. The series is curated by Chris Sollars.
