The Institute of Contemporary Art is pleased to present five performances conceptualized and set in motion by Raúl de Nieves, the second lead participant in the ongoing exhibition Endless Shout. Endless Shout—a six-month exhibition that offers improvisation and collectivity beyond music or dance to also include conversation, poetry, visual art, construction, etc.—asks how, why, where, and when performance and improvisation can take place inside a museum.

Join us for a presentation of Mother of Vinegar: 2nd Sequence by Whitney Vangrin. This event is free and open to the public. Register here.

Whitney Vangrin is an artist based in New York, working across mediums with an emphasis on performance. Equal parts physical and psychological, her performances question perceptions of authenticity, while making allusions to film, religion, dance, and structures of the body. In performance, the reality of the performer’s body and emotion is situated in a scene that hinges upon realism and construction. Vangrin was a founder and director of 1:1, a NYC non-profit arts space project. Her work has been shown at MoMA PS1, Issue Project Room, and ICA London, among other locations around the United States and abroad.
