CORE Performance Company in performance
CORE Performance Company presents a free performance created especially for the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston exhibition Hydrospatial City by Argentine kinetic artist Gyula Kosice. This is the 12th year of CORE's partnership with MFAH to create a kinetic exploration of the intention and process of the visual art on display.
This exploration of space architecture illustrates some of Gyula Kosice's fundamental preoccupations with water and space. Begun in 1946 and completed in 1972, La ciudad hidroespacial is the Argentine artist's most ambitious and longest-running project. By the early 1970s, the hidroespacial project had evolved into multiple sculptures/maquettes that now total 19 three-dimensional space habitats and seven, two-dimensional light boxes coming together in an immersive, single-room installation.
