Project Cityscope presents The New Structure: Linda Austin, Pat Boas & Linda Hutchins "Tracing Movement, Chasing Marks, Tracking Sound"
210 SE Madison St. Ste. 11
Portland, OR 97214
Dancer Linda Austin and visual artists Pat Boas and Linda Hutchins collaborate to explore what happens when drawing is placed in a visibly time-based context and ritualized as record and residue of movement. In their developing series of performative wall drawings The Word Hand, the artists harness language as a generative force for drawing. Its many manifestations — the movement and choreography of writing, the sound and cadence of speaking, the shapes of letterforms — provide points of intersection between movement, sound, and visual elements. For The New Structure, Austin, Boas, and Hutchins will present glimpses of their collaborative process and discuss the role that space plays in their work.
