Recreational Fields

The artist describes her activity as follows:

Artist Priscilla Aleman invites the community to join her in utilizing the Museum as a site to facilitate connective experiences: incorporating performance and charting new fields, to create a place of collective gathering.

This social sculpture will take the form of a game combining Caribbean dance and sports. The Museum will be transformed into a cosmic field akin to a basketball court with new rules and systems that will unfold with performance exercises and improvisation.
