Radical Presence Performance: Trenton Doyle Hancock
Target and Friedman Galleries, 7 pm
In Devotion (2013), Trenton Doyle Hancock brings to life a mythical creature called the Mound—alternating between hymnal singing and Jell-O feedings in this performance that asks viewers to consider what it means to be devoted to an idea or vision.
