No Lone Zone

A performance exhibition series featuring past and present students from the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Texas at Austin



No Lone Zone

Beginning on Saturday, November 14th, the Creative Research Laboratory will embark upon No Lone Zone, a performance exhibition series featuring past and present students from the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Texas at Austin.

By definition a no-lone-zone is a military term often used in nuclear sites describing an area where each individual must be within visual contact with each other and in visual contact with the object requiring a no-lone-zone area designation. The seven artists in this exhibition will examine the interpersonal intricacies of this militant security model through a series of performances exploring the spaces of the Creative Research Laboratory. During the extent of this exhibition, the CRL will be in a state of constant flux as participating artists manipulate, perform and transform the gallery into their own concept of a charged territory.

Featured artists include:
Mark Aguhar
Andrea Bonin
Kristina Felix
Ryan Lauderdale
Daphane Park
James Willard Pierce
Jen Frost Smith

In conjunction with the exhibition, The Creative Research Lab will collaborate with participating artists to create a reading room adjacent to the main gallery, containing materials pertinent to their practice as performance artists, as well as to the history of the medium.

We invite the public to stay tuned to our website and emails to learn more about our weekly performances, film screenings, and workshops.
