Charlie Levin

In this unique and intimate performance, witness a painting come to life in response to a text read aloud by the audience. Starting behind a large, clear piece of glass, Levin uses melted wax to create illuminated images that change with the direction and intensity of light. The elegiac text blends personal interviews, Twitter feeds, and other quotes with original reflections on perspective, race, conflict, grief, and loss. Experience how both truth and art are created — by many single perspectives together.
