Moon Medicin: Mosaic
January 8th, 2022, 6:30 PM


The Phillips Collection presents Moon Medicin: Mosaic Performance, a Centennial commission combining music and dance, engaging Sanford Biggers's sand-floor installation created in dialogue with Gee's Bend Quilts from the Phillips's permanent collection as part of his Intersections project Mosaic. To conclude Sanford Biggers: Mosaic, the multi-disciplinary performance will feature harpist Parker Ramsay, dancers Nicoletta de la Brown and Daniel Phoenix Singh, and DC-artist Sheldon Scott. Directed by Biggers, the dancers will respond in an improvisational manner to the sound of Omolu, a piece written for solo harp by Brazilian-American composer Marcos Balter that invokes the Yoruban spirit of healing. Through this performance, Biggers's sand-floor piece Fool's Folly, which references Tibetan mandalas, will be activated then dismantled, emphasizing the temporal aspect of art.

You are invited to participate in the performance by submitting a one sentence response to questions from Sanford Biggers (listed below) via this anonymous Google form.
