Blum & Poe’s expansive Culver City gallery digs have a panoply of big, intriguing architectural spaces, and they’ve been activating them with the BTWN series of performance art, screenings, comedy and music. This Saturday, they welcome Kandis Williams, who presents a full performance of visuals, music, movement and words from her multimedia Eurydice project.
By layering narrative and symbolic elements of the Greek myth of the poet Orpheus and his pursuit of his wife Eurydice into the underworld with a modern perspective on the logic of race and the contemporary public discourse, Williams and her collaborators achieve a poetic recasting of how our culture constructs identity.
