We jumped the gun on this a couple of weeks ago - the actual opening reception for The Settlement's next set of shows is this weekend. The Settlement is PLACE, STORE, PEOPLE, and TRADE galleries in the Pioneer Place mall. PLACE will be opening Terror and Ego
, new installations by Joshua Berger, Vanessa Calvert, Rhoda London, Emily Nachison, TJ Norris, and Dustin Zemel, on the 3rd floor of the mall. People's "offers original, small-scale works by local artists." Store is the result of a collaboration between the Settlement and PNCA, and "continues to develop and feature installation works by the BFA students of Victor Maldonado's Art, Ethics, and Transgression class." And finally, Trade is "the most fluid of the galleries focuses on local institutions that fill a creative and experimental niche," starting with a curatorial collaboration between Nim Wunnan of Research Club, Tori Abernathy of Recess Gallery, Wynde Dyer of Golden Rule, Elizabeth Lamb of White Box, and Max Ogden.

Appendix presents HOME/BODY
: "An elevator. A bus. A packed line. These are spaces where human proximity is close but not chosen. Juxtapose this with the selected intimacy of the domestic, and you have HOME/BODY, the latest piece by Choreographer Danielle Ross in collaboration with Video Artist Dustin Zemel. Eight performers are placed in a home and asked to improvise while negotiating pre-designed rules, task-oriented movement, and more importantly, each other. The audience will move freely through the space as the performers play with the sense of crowdedness and forced intimacy." This will serve as research for a larger upcoming project. The work will begin the Project Space and continue throughout the house, the audience is invited to come and go freely during the dance performance and installation.
