The Weight of Inheritance
Run of the Mills
Mills Gallery
Friday, October 26 | 8 pm (doors at 7:30 pm)

Participating Artists: Hector Canonge (Argentina-United States), Kledia Spiro (Albania-United States), and Óscar Gavilán Ortiz (Chile)

Public Performance, Informal Q&A with artists, and Reception

Artists Hector Canonge, Kledia Spiro and Óscar Gavilán Ortiz explore The Weight of Inheritance through performance art in the Mills Gallery. Simply put, inheritance refers to monetary or physical property that is passed from one generation to the next, as well as to the physical attributes and genetic qualities received from one’s parents. Yet perceptions of gender, class, race, and ethnicity make our heritage a variable gift or burden, or both, depending on the context. With an emphasis on process, these artists will collectively and individually consider how the body, movement and objects carry the "weight of inheritance." The centrality of the body in performance art makes it a key form and creative instrument with which to critically engage this concept as it fits within cultural and economic structures (e.g., art history, history, capitalism, politics). Each artist’s diverse practice and formative perspectives will enhance the address of “inheritance” and its “weight.”

The program was organized by Lisa Crossman, Curator at the Fitchburg Art Museum, in collaboration with Hector Canonge, director of the monthly program LiVEART.US hosted at the Queens Museum in New York City, where The Weight of Inheritance will be performed on October 21.
