INVERSE Performance Art Digital Festival 2020, hosted by the Momentary, and in partnership with the Miossi Gallery at Cuesta College is a three day digital festival presenting a series of performance works and conversations with artists working in material, movement, and time-based practices. The festival examines the following through lines of our 2020 experience - new landscapes, self and communal activism, shifting identities, public and private space in the digital sphere, intimacy and vulnerability, and more. As in years past, INVERSE continues to nestle into the uncomfortable and curious space of experimentation, rawness, and questioning that is essential to the medium itself.
