Push Pull by Valeska Soares

Grossman Terrace

First Friday, April 6 | 6 - 8 pm

Free and open to the public


See (and taste) a performance of Push Pull, one of the interactive works in the exhibition Valeska Soares: Any Moment Now.

Push Pull features giant masses of saltwater taffy dangling from specially fabricated stainless steel hooks. Performers at various stations push and pull the taffy in a continuous movement to generate continually morphing sculptures. In collaboration with Kreëmart, the artist handpicks the various taffies, each with a different color and flavor.

Visitors are invited to receive pieces of each sculpture, tasting the results of this collective labor—a literal way of “consuming” the work of art.
