Jacinte Armstrong

MFA Thesis Exhibition — Galleries 2 and 3

Noon Talk: Wednesday, March 11, 12 p.m.

Performance: Saturday, March 14, 1 p.m.

Armstrong activates Gallery 2 through performance, scores, objects, and movement. She draws inspiration from Yvonne Rainer and Simone Forti, artists with histories at NSCAD and whose work bridged the worlds of dance and the visual arts, bringing her own questions and experiences of dance into the gallery space.

Gallery 3 explores collaboration through installation, performance and audience participation in a piece co-created with graduate colleagues Camille-Zoé Valcourt-Synnott and Louis-Charles Dionne, as well as members of the audience.
