IMP Ensemble

IMP Ensemble will perform within the created environment, Mirror Eupepsia, a curatorial installation by artists Annie Woodfill and Monica Dixon, on Friday, November 30 at 7:30 PM in Charlotte Street Foundation's la Esquina Gallery. Under the direction of Michael Miller, UMKC’s IMP Ensemble explores improvisation in the broadest definition, where listening and responding become a way of real-time creation. IMP is a think-tank of people willing to risk and fail quickly, so a show can go on, using any new individual media to explore the boundaries of the medium and improvisation. The event is free and open to the public.

Mirror Eupepsia

Mirror Eupepsia is a curatorial installation by artists Annie Woodfill and Monica Dixon featuring the work of Julian Chams, Harper Hair, and Sepideh Majidi. The featured artists, working in diverse mediums, partake in processes of transformation that extract, regenerate and breakdown materials and information. Eupepsia, a Greek word meaning “good digestion,” refers to a shared attention from the artists to metabolisms of interaction and memory, synergistic components of experience, and cathartic absolve. This site-specific installation playfully finds connections between the artifacts of these practices and their proximities. Moving in and out of the present and the virtual, Mirror Eupepsia looks at whether our inner worlds are ever muted when we understand what is outside of ourselves.   #mirroreupepsia Featured Artists: Julian Chams (NY) Harper Hair (LA) Sepideh Majidi (CA) Read the Press Release here. Additional Sensory Manipulation Reception An additional reception for the Mirror Eupepsia will be held on November 8th at 5-8pm with a vague DIY workshop based on common visceral activities offered by ASMR! You can make some slime! Standing for “Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response”, ASMR refers to a conglomeration of emerging internet practices involving DIY tactile hyperrealism. While presenting ubiquitous examples of instagram and youtube communities that are involved with these sensibilities, we will be casually offering slime-making and ice-eating opportunities as ways to enter a haptic hyperawareness for viewing the works by the artists, exploring virtual capabilities of the physical. Feel free to bring a friend and enjoy a free event this upcoming Thursday! Free drinks will be provided by Boulevard Brewing Co.
