Too often, I find myself in situations where I am explaining how live art is different from theatre or dance and defending what I do as a visual art medium. This is a major motivation for The Present Tense’s commitment to educate visual art communities about live art. In 2006, I began curating Accumulation as a way to put this into practice. I proposed Accumulation to 10 spaces, all of them unwilling to show it due to it’s unpredictable nature. Just when the air started to leak out of my inner hope balloon, we joined forces with Homespun and Bradley Benedetti to start MEME. Accumulation is finally happening! Stop by MEME anytime between 6.7.09 and 6.27.09 to see the process of evolution. Prepare to have your feathers ruffled!
