Artist Talk with Mark Mann at Guild Hall

May 5 @ 2:00 pm

Mark-Mann-550x412

In conjunction with the exhibition A Creative Retreat – Portraits of Artists, Guild Hall exhibiting artist Mark Mann will join Anthony Madonna, Guild Hall Director of Learning + New Works, Klassic Carella, Flexn Dancer, and Jose Sebastian, founder & artistic director of Hamptons Dance Project, for a conversation on Mann’s project, Movement At The Still Point and their experience creating & working on the East End of Long Island.

Movement At The Still Point is a collection of images that captures the dynamism and energy of the mediums of both dance and photography. In homage to his hero Irving Penn, Mann installed a backdrop of painterly muslin in vast West Side studio. Dancers from many genres – including ballet, jazz, African, tap, Broadway theater, hip-hop, and ballroom – perform and discuss their passions about the art form in this stark environment. The project is a testament to the emotional and physical power of each dancer, in stillness and in motion.

The collection has been published by Rizzoli International Publications. Books will be available for purchase in advance or on the day, subject to availability, with a signing by Mark Mann and the artists directly after the program.

$10 – $15
