6/13: Invisible Architectures Social Contracts Performances

Thursday, June 13, 2024 | 6:00 PM

INVISIBLE ARCHITECTURES | SOCIAL CONTRACTS VII Performance Program at the UnderBar -  Maryland Art Place's (MAPs) basement Cabaret and performance venue.

Thursday, June 13, 2024  from 6:00pm - 9:00pm

The daily performance of life and living is one that has become more omnipresent as the relationship that we have to each other is often layered with masks: mediated through technology, social media personas, and algorithms. Artists are able to see the smoke and mirrors and through these ways of seeing are able to present the audience with alternative realities that are not dependent on technology. 

For the performance night, a melangerie of performances will take place at the cabaret.

This dynamic interdisciplinary art festival and Co-Lab sponsored project  (Spring 2024) investigates the past, present and future directions social contracts may take. Join us on Thursday, May 16 from 5 pm to 9 pm for the opening reception taking place during the BROMO Art Walk with accompanying performances held on Thursday, June 13 (details forthcoming).

About Invisible Architectures: 

As we approach another election year in the United States, agreements about what is included in an American social contract continue to be up for debate.The term social contract started when philosophers from France to England started to think about the nature of humanity and the tensions that exist between the people who enact power and the people who do not. What are the agreed upon boundaries that exist within our social, family and political structures? How do these boundaries create or negate cognitive distance with what actually happens in any social theater? Artistic interventions have the potential to offer us much needed insights and possibilities for our collective future.
