In our recent exhibition, Get Bodied, artists entered the space each day to conduct workshops, perform, and engage the academic community at Penn State's Zoller gallery. As the exhibition progressed, a concurrent collection of new material occurred and was projected, or installed in the space. Get Bodied featured varied productions ranging from drag performances, slam poetry, and hip-hop to name a few. All visitors became a part of the final performance through the documentation of their engagement. Central to our collaborations is the disruption of socially embedded power structures, visual matter, and cultural normativity. Our evolving collections of media, performance, and installation challenge stationary ideals of cultural capital. Our merged media intervention embodies performance, allyship, and creative pedagogy for an ongoing assemblage of fluid otherness.
