RECEPTION (standard stare)
Maxxi Museum, Rome
July 6, 2022

The reception is the fun part of the wedding day, and it's also a word used around radio signals.

Reception continues Ivan Cheng’s ongoing proposition of Standard Stare, a work around infrastructure, desire, and distance. This solo iteration is staged in the entrance area of Maxxi, and follows Wedding Day, presented a few days earlier in the combined turbine spaces of Centrale Fies, Dro. Standard Stare includes accumulated musical materials of Gailė Griciūtė, Julia Reidy, Marcus Whale, and a sculpture by Mire Lee. Garments by Good and Bad (Marina M. Kolushova, Victor Stuhlmann, Ossi Lehtonen).
