March 8 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm| Free
Angela Ellsworth presents a new performance on Sunday, March 8, 2-4 p.m. between the Stedman Gallery and Black Box Theater in Center for Creative Arts. Caleb Weintraub will perform on Thursday, March 12. “Seamless: Craft Based Objects and Performance Practices” includes sculpture. painting, video and performance by three artists in this American exhibition with Angela Ellsworth, Caleb Weintraub, and Stephanie J. Williams. Each has a practice of performance/video in addition to their object making. All work with mediums related to sewing and all frequent the craft store, but they also carefully construct videos and/or performances. All live and work in a different region of the United States and they are well recognized by critics and collectors but Rutgers-Camden offers an opportunity to reach new audiences. Phoenix-based Ellsworth is celebrated for her beautifully crafted yet biting “Seer Bonnets” and joyful yet intimidating videos of performance. Indiana-based Weintraub glides through mediums like an ice skater with fluidity between them but with uncomfortable narratives. Williams contemplates identity issues simply sewn body parts that are somewhat at odds with her time based top action films. The exhibition runs through April 16, 2020.
