Frame 301 Gallery
301 Cabot Street
Beverly, MA 01915
Gallery Hours 24/7
This two week-long series will transform Frame 301 gallery into a dynamic, street-front performance space. Two works will be selected by the gallery staff, each of which will be performed in the window gallery during a one-week period, with the remnants of the performance remaining on display for the duration of that week.
Max Reinhard will perform Insulate on Tuesday, November 28, from 3:30-7pm.
Max Reinhard will walk the line between comfort and claustrophobia in the form of a sculptural performance. By weaving himself into a cocoon over the course of several hours, he will progressively obscure himself from view. His process will be displayed on a screen from a webcam inside the capsule, allowing the onlooker a first person perspective into this confined space. Max is interested in repetitive tasks bringing comfort and security, but also discomfort as we become trapped in habits, patterns, and obsessions.
Róisín Gilligan will perform Stranger Beings on Wednesday, December 6, from 6–6:30pm.
Stranger Beings is a performance piece in a series of ongoing works by artist Róisín Gilligan. The works explore the relationships and interactions we have with one another as individual beings– whether between strangers, close friends, or lovers–Róisín examines the ways we interact with one another and how those interactions create the environment around us, as well as the ways in which our physical being and the connection we have with one another limits our intimacy.
