Skowhegan PERFORMS 2014

  • Socrates Sculpture Park

Socrates’ Emerging Artist Fellowship Exhibition is the setting for SkowheganPERFORMS. EAF14: 2014 Emerging Artist Fellowship Exhibition features 15 new commissions created over the summer in the park's outdoor studio. Rather than being a thematic exhibition, each artist has a distinct artwork that embodies his/her innovative exploration of sculpture in the public sphere. Each artist has responded specifically to the park’s unique waterfront, urban environment with conceptual and formal artworks that are at once visually compelling, subtly mysterious, and socially engaging.

Proposals for SkowheganPERFORMS were submitted in the same spirit. Performances are site-specific, using the landscape and history of Socrates as well as existing works throughout the park as launching points to engage viewers and form a dialogue with the unique setting the park offers. Performances may be one moment, ongoing, or repeated over the course of the afternoon at various locations. We hope performances this year will be especially dynamic, engaging with the features of park itself, as well as other participants.
