Performance by Maria Hassabi
Commissioned by the Pulitzer, internationally recognized artist and choreographer Maria Hassabi will perform a new work created in response to both the architecture of the museum and the exhibition on view, Striking Power: Iconoclasm in Ancient Egypt. Hassabi has created a choreographic practice that concentrates on slowness, stillness, and the space between bodies in motion. Transposing the languages and strategies of dance into the spaces of contemporary and historic art, she decelerates movement until it evokes sculpture and image, testing conventional rhythms of viewership in the process.
