PICA’s signature public engagement program continues to cross disciplines and explore new thematic territory with five Festival Field Guides facilitated by leading local and visiting artists and scholars. Each small-group session creates context around contemporary performance and a particular artist’s social, political, cultural, and aesthetic influences through a pre-show workshop with lecture and lively discussion; group viewing of a TBA performance; and post-show conversation over food and drink. For this session join Tonya Lockyer, Artistic Director at Velocity Dance Center, in exploring artist Lucy Yim’s practice and her performance of Devastation Melody. Online artist interviews and media supplement learning and engagement. Anyone curious about contemporary art welcome. Bring a friend!
