The Third Indeterminacy Festival & Hallwalls present

Liaison to The Farthest

We will screen two works this evening, one that grapples with the relationships between individual and object here on earth and the other which goes outwards, leaving Earth behind to link our relationships with what lies beyond.

Liaison is a work for piano and dancer conceived by Megan Beugger and made in collaboration with Buffalo-based dancer/choreographer Melanie Aceto.

The Farthest explores NASA's epic Voyager mission Launched in 1977 which revolutionized our understanding of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune and their spectacular moons and rings. In 2012, Voyager 1 pierced the bubble of our solar system and ushered humanity into the interstellar age. Voyager 2 is expected to join it in interstellar space within the next few years. Both Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 continue to function, and send daily updates back to Earth from almost 13 billion miles and almost 11 billion miles away, respectively.

The Farthest features more than 20 original and current Voyager team members, providing never-before-seen insights into one of the greatest feats of exploration our species has ever undertaken.

This event is a part of this year's third annual Indeterminacy Festival themed PastFuture/FuturePast, focusing on our past and future communication with the earth and beyond.

Three Fold Form

Inspired by Jungian psychology and mythology, Ashley Smith's process is an alchemical cauldron where personal narratives about womanhood, motherhood, research about art, stories, and myths of the wild woman archetype who represents the instinctive nature of woman are boiled together and transmuted to create abstract sculptural forms and installations that sprout from the wall and grow from the ground.

Stephanie Rohlfs
Put One Over

Rohlfs' work springboards from a clean surface appearance and concise formal gestures into a hybridized set of works that make the artist seem part minimalist, part colorist, part humorist. Rohlfs' sculptural gestures are so adroitly specific and contained that each element—a field of color, a drooping form, a slab of shelving—takes on more imminent and emphatic articulation ...
