An interdisciplinary performance and installation is on view at the Contemporary Arts Center.

Visual artist Shawn Hall and performing artists Katie Pearl and Lisa D’Amour present How to Build a Forest, a durational performance that unfolds over an eight-hour period, at the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC). Each day, the artists, along with a four-person crew, will construct and deconstruct an intricate forest scene. The work is informed by a heightened awareness of the natural and built environments, particularly locally after Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill.

Performances will take place October 23, 24, 25, and 29. During the eight-hour performances, audience members are welcome to visit the installation at any time and may come and go as they please. The event is free and open to the public.
