Peers returns to the scene of the crime

My sound piece Peers will be presented at the newly formed Dallas Biennial. In this iteration, it will be presented as a stereo sound piece at the Texas Theater -- highly appropriate, since Peers uses a text that is a transcription of Lee Harvey Oswald's words after the Kennedy assassination, and the Texas Theater was the scene of Oswald's arrest. The program also includes works by Robert Smithson, Nam June Paik, and others.

Texas Theater
231 West Jefferson Blvd, Dallas, TX
May 31, 2012, 7PM-10PM

The Dallas Biennial runs April-June 2012, with a substantial online component continuing into the archival undetermined future.
