Artist Jaimie Henthorn is exploring historic architecture yet again through an upcoming performance in Detroit. For a taste of her work, check out this video of gravity-defying moves she staged last fall inside Mies’ Chapel at Illinois Institute of Technology. Elena Brocade was the aerialist.
Henthorn is behind the Tuesday, July 24 performance by Phaedra Eason and Corissa Leveille at 1342 Nicolet Place in Detroit’s Lafayette Park at 6:30 p.m. It is expected to last one hour and is accompanied by a reception. For details, contact Henthorn at email@example.com.
This event is concurrent with the Mies Society’s exhibition, “Lafayette Park: The Settlement Shape,” in S. R. Crown Hall through Friday, July 27 (on IIT’s Main Campus).
