Studio Series: devynn emory
In Process Talks moderated by Andrew Simonet
A transgender artist, emory presents a work-in-process titled this horse is not a home, investigating the consequence of action initiated or applied to the weighted body. Throughout the process, emory asks, “If I push down hard enough, will you rise up to meet me? Trust. If you are going to do something, do it.” Performed by emory with Margot Bassett, Jaamil Kosoko, and Meghan Milam.
The Studio Series offers an opportunity for research and development in a creative residency format, providing resources of time, space and a commission. The Studio Series is a research laboratory for physical explorations and new movement investigations with a focus on process, not final performance/product. The “performances” are intended to be informal public showings to share ideas with an audience in the intimate working space of the studio. Studio Series artists are curated internally by the Artistic Director in conjunction with Programming staff and guest curators from Urban Word NYC.
There is no late seating for all studio series showings.
Studio Series is supported, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the Jerome Foundation.
