Opening Reception: Friday, February 1, 6-8pm
Since 2011, visual artist Karthik Pandian and choreographer Andros Zins-Browne have been exploring the image of revolution in the wake of the Arab Spring. Narratives of movement—figurative and literal, political and aesthetic, confessional and speculative—have woven their way through a series of interrelated works across moving image, theatre, and dance. Atlas Unlimited, the latest iteration of this ongoing project, combines sculpture and storytelling, tracing the flows of people, art, and artifacts across geographies and cultures in the past, present, and future. Taking place across a number of international venues, Atlas Unlimited changes and adapts to its specific context as it moves, unfolding in a succession of “acts” at each location.
