TAKAHIRO YAMAMOTO
Property of Opaqueness
OCT 6 / Time TBA
Velocity 
1621 12th Ave.

In partnership with the Henry Art Gallery, Velocity will be presenting a performance by Portland-based artist Takahiro Yamamoto‘s Property of Opaqueness. This event will coincide with Takahiro’s work with the Henry, connected with Carrie Yamaoka‘s recto/verso exhibition, on view at the Henry through November of this year.

Property of Opaqueness is the first iteration of choreographer Takahiro Yamamoto’s project under the umbrella titled Opacity of Performance. This multi-year project investigates visibility and the physical and emotional effects that performers and viewers undergo when acts of looking, moving, and paying attention vary over an extended duration. When does visibility/invisibility validate the performer and when does it negate them? What are the social consequences of looking at a performing body today?
