Jenny Graf is a Baltimore based artist who works with the social dimension of art and the consequences of performance. She is interested in using art to explore perceptual states and social pretexts. That art must not always be a product of a particular form of personal agency and instead become a mutually produced reality, between people is a fact that is supported by her work. She has engaged people in the production of a restaurant in the basement of her home, she has designed projects for a group of women with Alzheimer's in which the guitar serves as voice, and she started the Stone Carving Oraclestra, which explores Experimental Archeology and the use of phonemes to channel "readings" for members of the audience.
The Fresh Produce Festival of Live Art is taking place at The Fridge Gallery in Washington, DC in February 2011. The Fridge will be welcoming over 60 local and national performance artists to come and express themselves with absolute freedom. Experience a month of theater, music, dance, poetry, magic, experimental gatherings, and that which cannot be explained. The Festival Kicks off on Friday, February 4, 2011 and runs through the end of the month.
