Brendan Fernandes — A Call and Response @ MCA Chicago

Brendan Fernandes — A Call and Response @ MCA Chicago


Brendan Fernandes, I’m Down, 2017. Performance, printed matter (T-shirts, banners, placards, and posters), and mural.

Brendan Fernandes’ performance installation, A Call and Response, uses motion to highlight the (hyper)visibility of bodies and the nature of being seen. The interactive project encourages viewers to join the “call to movement” of the piece to explore the meanings behind movement and outward appearance. Determined by those in the vicinity of the project, the performances in A Call and Response are unique every time they are seen. More information on the times of each performance in the project can be found here.
