On Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m., the University of Maryland’s tiny but bold Stamp Gallery will inaugurate its new Artist in Residence series with a reception for “Volume,” a site--specific sculpture of colored tissue paper created by sculptor and performance artist Maya Freelon Asante.
During the show’s month--long run, Asante will invite gallery visitors to contribute to a growing paper quilt that she expects will expand beyond the confines of the gallery into the atrium of the student union, uniting artist and community in a collaborative act. In the past, Asante has incorporated dancelike movement into her work, highlighting her art’s kinetic qualities as well as its fragility. This show will culminate with a closing performance by Asante on March 6 from 5 to 8 p.m.
