Two Bay Area artists explore illumination and movement in a new video installation, “Continua in Light,” at the Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art January 12 through February 18. Cheryl Calleri and Thekla Hammond will be at the free, public reception Thursday, January 12, from 4-6 p.m., which includes an original, dance performance. The site-specific dance is choreographed by associate professor Erlyne Whiteman and performed by her students.
The installation, Hammond and Calleri’s second video collaboration, consists of two tandem video projectors illuminating nine translucent suspended scrims. During the reception, dancers will move between the scrims in a performance that interacts with the video art. A recording of the performance will be on view throughout the run of the exhibition.
