Reception: Thursday, November 3, 6-7:30 p.m.
Final Artist Walk Thru: Saturday, November 5 at 4 p.m.

Katherine Longstreth weaves pedestrian movement with fully articulated physicality to create startling, poignant imagery, and subtle narrative. Her work, Marginal Evidence, is a visual installation about the intimate act of choreography. Using set design, text, illustrations, diagrams, photographs, and video projections, Longstreth creates an interactive experience which reveals the usually invisible aspects of dance-making. Part forensic investigation, part archeology dig, Marginal Evidence provides multiple points of entry for visitors to engage with a specific creative process, engaged through tactile, aural, and kinesthetic means.

From 1996-2000 Longstreth served as executive director for The Field, a NYC-based service organization dedicated to performing artists. Her work has been presented by Dance Theater Workshop, David Parker/The Bang Group, the Brooklyn Arts Exchange, the Harkness Center for Dance at the 92nd St. Y, Performance Mix, Broome Corner, Context, Dixon Place, Piccolo Spoeleto, and the Toronto Fringe Festival of Independent Dance Artists, among others. Longstreth is a co-founder of the Estrus Works performance group and a curator and producer for Girl Wonder for Movement Research. The initial creation of Marginal Evidence was supported in part by the Oregon Arts Commission, the Regional Arts and Culture Council, and the White Box at the University of Oregon School of Architecture and Allied Arts in Portland.
