Current BFA student Austin Adkins ‘12 and alumnae Linda Hutchins ‘88 were selected to perform at the Low Lives 4, an international festival of live performance-based works transmitted via the internet and projected in real time at multiple venues throughout the U.S.
Portland Institute for Contemporary Art will present performances by Adkins and Hutchins on April 27, 5:30–8:30pm, and April 28, 12–3pm, in their new space, 415 SW 10th Ave (Suite 300).
With experience in competitive roller-skating, Adkins will create a physical “video loop” online and in the PICA space, using his skates as training wheels towards the development of physical proficiency. Hutchins will combine drawing and percussion in a performance that weaves repeated strokes of silver from ten finger thimbles into a rhythmic pattern on the walls.
