Reflect - Palm Desert

Join us on Saturday, November 26 for Reflect - Palm Desert, an interactive public performance by Andrea Stanislav. The artist will walk the gallery and Palm Desert's urban setting in a wearable sculpture. This garment begins by being entirely covered with thousands of hand-made mirrored buttons that reflect the environment as the artist walks. The wearable sculpture is diminished by giving away the buttons, one at a time to the public, in exchange for each individuals' photograph. After the walk, the thousands of digital photographs collected are made into black and white "portrait buttons" and attached to the open areas of the original garment sculpture. Stanislav has exhibited this public performance at the 2013 Moscow Biennial, St. Petersburg, New York City, and Key West, Florida.

Opening the same evening is MMFA's annual California focused group exhibition featuring Kelly Berg, Anthony James, Leo Marmol, Andy Moses, Elizabeth Orleans, Ruth Pastine, and Norton Wisdom.
