B (July2013- )
Beginning July 19th at Monte Vista Projects, Brian Getnick presents RGB; a series of 3 performances and sculptural installations exploring the relationship between memory’s construction and the body.
RGB re-activates work made from the first two years of a long term project on memory titled The Complete works of the Rainbow in which each year is assigned a color.
“Color coding a year’s worth of performances and correlating sculpture has been a way of tracking my process of discovering a subject. I could say that I enter blindly, or enter darkness as to what the subject is but instead of that intuitive zone being dark, it’s a colorful void. I am reaching into that color to find the forms which let memory, feeling and theory coalesce as an object, then come to life as a performance. The Red year happened in 2012 and the Green year is coming to a close on July 7th, my birthday. Blue will begin in early August with ‘open auditions’. I’m not entirely sure, but I think the blue year will be erotic.”
July 19th and 20th 12-7 pm
Red: Memory vs. the body. A band living inside a body sings the body’s memories. In collaboration with Claire Cronin, Ezra Buchla, Corey Fogel, Nathan Bockelman, and Bryatt Bryant
July 26th and 27th 12-7 pm, performance times TBA
Green: The head and the body. With performer and writer Bryatt Bryant we developed 2 green characters whose heads occasionally leave their bodies. They see an orgy, they reanimate 2 halves of an oracular dead horse.
August 3rd and 4th times TBA
Blue: Open auditions for the new year begin at Monte Vista.
