Chroma Machine Suite: Forecasting Fault Lines in the Cosmos

January 27, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - March 17, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

The H&R Block Artspace is pleased to present Chroma Machine Suite: Forecasting Fault Lines in the Cosmos, an exhibition of work by Dannielle Tegeder, including two new commissions created with 14 students at the Kansas City Art Institute during the artist’s residency at the Artspace.

In an ongoing exploration of invisible systems, the artist reveals her deep engagement with ideas of architecture, urban planning, painting and collaboration in a dynamic environment that merges drawing, sculpture, animation, sound, and performance.

This immersive and evolving sculptural installation will be re-activated through a series of performative iterations in collaboration with Jane Gotch, a Kansas City-based choreographer, and dancer, who will be joined by dancer Karen Lisondra.

Dannielle Tegeder lives and works in New York. Her works have been included in exhibitions at the Montclair Art Museum, Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College, Carrie Secrist Gallery, Chicago and Johannes Vogt Gallery, New York.

Jane Gotch has presented her choreography in Lawrence, Philadelphia, and Brooklyn. She has danced with Myra Bazell, Netta Yerushalmy, and as an apprentice with Tere O’Connor. She has collaborated with artists Johanna Brooks, Brad Cox, Leo Gayden, Helen Gillet, Shawn Hansen, Peregrine Honig, Miles Neidenger, Paul Rudy, Mark Southerland and many others.
