Salidas y Entradas | Exits and Entrances

UTEP Rubin Center for the Visual Arts

May 31 through August 10, 2018

"In the work of artists Jessica Hankey and Erin Johnson, theatricality is a means of enlarging the self and creating new realities. In their multi-channel video installation Salidas y Entradas | Exits and Entrances, participants from three of El Paso’s senior centers explore the boundaries between rehearsal, improvisation, performance, and critique - traversing the spectrum from the permissible and everyday to the extraordinary or false. With the senior center – a site of social contact, care and collectivity – as a stage, the performers take up and play with social, political and geographical imaginaries."
