I’m really glad that Performance Mix #34: Remotely Yours turned out to be so productive for me. I was able to wrap my head around the ideas that were all circling in my head.
This excerpt from McGinn & Again’s a Gram & a Gone explores the processes in building pluralist movement constellations among long-term friends. Composite symbolism, geometry, spectral materiality, and the abyss are all kaleidoscopically touched upon, albeit with dark humor, via McGinn & Again’s multidisciplinary capacities.
McGinn & Again is a multidisciplinary family art collective initiated by James and Jen McGinn. While maintaining professional autonomy, the duo’s working practices often converge on collaborative projects, including, but not limited to generative artistic research, pseudo-conceptual theory, and the development of post contemporary pedagogical platforms. Collaborating with family and friends, in their work they explore the depth of these seasoned relationships in objective respect to hyperformalist composition with a makeshift grandeur. James and Jen have shaped their work through residencies with Movement Research, Gibney Dance, danceWEB@ ImPulsTanz, Brooklyn Arts Exchange, Dance Theater Workshop, and nEW Festival. Most recently their work was presented at CPR by the Mertz Gilmore Foundation/Chez Bushwick and American Realness.
