About the performance
Nari Ward’s Ground (In Progress) is a floor-based sculpture made from 700 copper-topped bricks and adorned with painted geometric symbols drawn from the Underground Railroad directional code. Visitors are invited to walk across the surface of the work, challenging the untouchable and monumental nature of works of fine art. This work is on view in the Vattikuti Learning Theater from February 16–20th. On the evening of February 18, PAMM has invited five local dancers to perform and improvise atop Ward’s sculpture and respond to its ideas using a range of dance styles.
