LabBodies, a performance art laboratory in Baltimore, Maryland is pleased to present Borders, Boundaries, and Barricades, a two week long performance art review highlighting the performance art community in Baltimore. The festival is scheduled for June 22nd- July 4th, 2015 at Gallery CA, La Bodega Gallery, and LabBodies Performance Art Laboratory in Baltimore’s Station North neighborhood. The review will feature works from emerging to mid- career artists based in Baltimore and will incorporate scheduled performances, interactive installations, artist talks, and a panel discussion.

About Borders, Boundaries, and Barricades
The two week long festival will examine the concept of borders, visible/invisible lines that separate two or more political or geographic areas. A border is an edge, a limitation, a boundary. They may be real/imagined; internal/external; self/other; life/ death; of the city/state. Borders both bring us together as well as define our wounds. Despite the complexity of this liminal space that borders create, we often find ourselves working with or against them in our everyday interactions as they strictly monitor and circumscribe our movements. This series of events will include performances, interactive installations, and lectures that will feature the work of artists and curators who live and work outside of the margins of borders.

About LabBodies
LabBodies is a performance art laboratory based in Baltimore Maryland that provides a format for artists working in the arena of performance art to exhibit their work, with the primary values of collaboration, experimentation, and interaction. LabBodies has been commissioned by Art Outside Maryland (2015) The Baltimore Museum of Art (2014), Bromo Arts District (2014) and Transmodern Performance Festival (2014) to create ephemeral happenings that engages audiences with our signature interactive time-based works. The Vision of LabBodies is to establish Baltimore as a location where regional, national and international performance artists live and work through: ongoing series of performance art events, performance artist residencies and a new series of performance art festivals. To date, LabBodies has showcased over 50 local, regional, national and international performance artists. The Laboratory was founded in 2014 and is under the direction of Dr. H. Corona and Dr. A.
