  • RAM HIGHLIGHT

    Rockbund Art Museum (RAM) is delighted to announce the launch of the annual art project “RAM HIGHLIGHT 2017: DISPLACE”, opening on September 29 and running until October 4, 2017. Following the success of the first edition last year, “RAM HIGHLIGHT 2017” continues its exploration of cutting-edge creativity in the fields of contemporary art and culture. Ten artists from around the world will be invited to present a rich and dynamic configuration of programs in the museum over a relatively short span of a week. “DISPLACE” cannot simply be pigeonholed as exhibition, performance, dance, or theater, yet it encompasses different overlapping layers of visual and audio elements as well as performances. The art project will foster a diverse yet open viewing experience along with myriad means of audience participation with the project’s unique statements and expressions.

  • RAM HIGHLIGHT 2017: DISPLACE

    Through the accumulation of changing temporal and spatial experiences, “DISPLACE” offers up unexpected events that will land everyday in the museum: improvisational activities deriving from sports, dance, music, social media, “eco-care”, family relationships, or even cooking. Moreover, a program running one night through to early dawn—which will allow spectators to follow time’s plunge into darkness—will spark unexpected encounters with the artists and generate much energy and wonder. In formal terms, “DISPLACE” transforms the galleries into a boundary-breaking experimental space.

     

    As Larys Frogier, Director of RAM says, "The dynamic of change, circulation, activation generated by ‘DISPLACE’ is reinforced by the gathering of a group of artists but it is actually what constitutes the core of ‘DISPLACE’: each artist has conceived a project that often stands within the tension between different art practices, switching social positions and media, creating ambiguous situations where the acts of looking, showing, stating, performing are never forever fixed but always extended, exchanged, mixed, embodied and addressed as a full act of creation and as a necessary process of thinking.”

  • About the Program and Artists

    Moriah Evans | Episodes and Fragments

    Episodes and Fragments is a series of research inquiries on movement, viewership, behaviors, and values, with a series of embodied practices, exploring interiority while negotiating the external visibility of performance.

     

    Moriah Evans is an artist working in and on the form of dance—as artifact, object, and culture with its histories, default production mechanisms, modes of staging, and viewing—and the capacity of the public to read dance. Her choreographies navigate utopic and dystopic potentials within dance, approached as a fleshy and matriarchal form sliding between minimalism and excess.

     

    Performing:

    2 – 6 pm, October 3

    2 – 6 pm, October 4

     

    contact Gonzo| no title(but brainstormed every different morning)

    The Performances of contact Gonzo are composed of improvisational movements, including hard contact, stomping and dragging each other, throwing stuff, and all other totally non-sense moves derived from influences out of all kinds of sports, camping, videos of martial arts on the internet, skate culture, history of dance, modern philosophy, and, oh, even cooking. The artists will choreograph a set of new movements every morning at Rockbund Art Museum. They will improvise according to their changing states of mind and chosen sites in the museum; this approach reflects one of the core concepts in their artworks—“corporeal spontaneity.” contact
