“Eiko’s creative practice pushes us to rethink the conventions of museum work to support an experience that will grow and change over time, both in our galleries and beyond,” said Michael Christiano, Museum Director at the Fine Arts Center. “The project blurs the boundaries between visual and live arts inviting guests to encounter Eiko’s work in a dynamic and sensorial environment.”
