On the closing day of No Longer Empty’s Curatorial Lab: The Way Out is Through, audiences will witness and contribute to transforming a visual landscape of memory created by Paloma McGregor and Angela’s Pulse collaborators. This installation-based performance is a bridge between the ensemble-based Building a Better Fishtrap/Part 1 and the developing solo iteration (Phase 2).

This installation-based performance is an installment of Building a Better Fishtrap, an iterative performance project rooted in the vanishing fishing tradition of choreographer Paloma McGregor’s father. The project examines what happens when you leave your ancestral home: What do you take with you? Leave behind? Return to reclaim?

The performance will take place continually over a three-hour period, growing and shifting while it activates the LeRoy Neiman space. Audience members are welcome to come and go as they please.

Presented by NLE Curatorial Lab in conjunction with the exhibition The Way Out is Through. Curated by Leticia Gutierrez, Ladi’Sasha Jones, Kirstin Kapustik, Zena Koo, Kenneth Paranada, and Maurizzio Hector Pineda.
