In “Drifting”, Vanessa Garcia draws from the surrealist tradition of the exquisite corpse, a collaborative exercise using words and images to construct a figure or a phrase. Now, the exquisite corpse shows up in theatrical form–for a night that included dance, performance art and traditional forms of theatre. The collaborators include Ivonne Batanero, Nicole Stodard, Carey Briana Hart, Christina Frigo, Sheri L. Flanders, Belaxis Buil, Patricia Margarita Hernandez, Leonardo Valencia and David Brieske.
The event, which took place during Art Basel 2013 @ Panther Coffee in Wynwood , was a collaboration with Reading Queer, The Krane, Girls’ Club Fort Lauderdale and Panther Coffee. Hundreds of spectators caught a glimpse of “Drifting”. Many showed up for the event. Many just happened upon the event as they were walking between galleries.
