Offsite Performances from local, multi-disciplinary artists
In a series of four multi-disciplinary public performances, Girls’ Club brings unique experiences outside the walls of the gallery space and into the world’s stage.
In collaboration with performance/video artist Jen Clay, author/visual artist Vanessa Garcia, choreographer/dancer Jenny Larsson and visual/performance artist Christina Pettersson, Girls’ Club has commissioned these artists to engage otherwise non-traditional locations for performance, while exploring narratives that relate to each’s personal artistic practices and inspirations.
