Opening Reception: Saturday, January 7, 5:30pm to 8pm

Thirst is a response to McCracken’s two-person performance Thirst, and the Martyr. Both works draw attention to access to resources, asking viewers to consider scarcity and abundance, both locally and globally. Where the performance allowed for a passive reception, however, Thirst places performative responsibility on the audience. Viewers are required to keep their attention fixed upon their senses, movement, and personal space. In this light, the installation invokes experiences both familiar and foreign.”
—Claire Huschle, Curator
