A Site-Specific Performance by Katie Kehoe
The Tidal Basin, Washington, DC

On Sunday, October 20th, performance artist Katie Kehoe will lead a group of participating artists in a public performance sequence through areas of the Tidal Basin that will be flooded if there is a six-foot rise in sea levels. The performers will utilize prop, signalling gestures, and conversation to engage with both their audience and their surroundings.

To observe the piece, please visit the following sites at the times specified below:

2:10pm – Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial
2:30pm – Martin Luther King Memorial
3:00pm – Jefferson Memorial

This is a public performance and is free to attend.

Participating performers include: Wendy Sittner, Ophelia Gavin, Sisc Johnson, Megan Hoover, Cynt Turner, Sarah Carrillo, Sue Wrbican, Megan Hajdo, Lisa Hajdo, Yassmin Raiszadeh, Liz Ashe, Heloisa Escudero, Ashley Johnson, Frank McCauley, among others.

Katie Kehoe creates object-based performances and site-specific installations, often incorporating duration, social engagement and adaptive reuse of materials as defining artistic elements. Embracing the absurd to engage the everyday, Kehoe produces scenarios that invite conversation with the public. Raised in Cape Breton, NS and currently living in Fredericksburg, VA, Kehoe teaches at Virginia Commonwealth University and George Mason. Her work has been exhibited across the US and Canada, highlights include: The Contemporary Museum (Baltimore, MD), Center for Maine Contemporary Art (Rockland, ME), RedLine Contemporary (Denver, CO), Emerge Art Fair (Washington, DC), SummerWorks Festival – LiveArt Series (Toronto, ON) as well as solo exhibitions at VisArts (Rockville, MD), Verso Gallery and Type Books Gallery (Toronto, CAN). Kehoe holds an MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art (Baltimore, MD) and a BA Hons from Saint Mary’s University (Halifax, NS).

This site-specific performance is presented with support from VCUArts and Arlington Arts Center as part of Assembly 2019, Arlington Arts Center’s inaugural regional biennial exhibition.
