Extended Hours: Live Performance and DJ Set at Mason Gross Galleries

Mason Gross Galleries

6–9 p.m. October 7, 2016

DJ Set by Bryan Castro: 6–9 p.m.
Live performance by Ash Rivera: 7 p.m.

Ash Rivera's performance is a meditative action on her body that reflects on social issues such as gender, race, and cultural identity. She uses herself as an object physically and metaphorically while interacting with and against other inanimate objects (her painting Trapped Ivy, 23 inches-by-36 inches, oil on canvas, is at left), referencing struggles experienced not only by herself as a Latina, but all women and their identities who are forced into limited social space and mobility, as is still evident in modern Western culture. Call 848-932-5211 for more information.

This is part of the new Extended Hours series: on the "First Friday” of each month the gallery stays open until 9 p.m. and special student performances are held.
