About Sunday Service
Taking place the first Sunday of each month, a guest curator is invited to organize a salon style evening of cross-disciplinary performances and presentations that brings together a multiplicity of views around a singular prompt, such as a question, theme, or formal structure. Sunday Service centers works in progress, interdisciplinary endeavors, and diversity in format showcased in a lo-fi environment to foster the exploration of ideas and critical discourse amongst peers.
Sunday Service is programmed by Stephanie Acosta and Alexis Wilkinson. Stephanie Acosta is an interdisciplinary artist who places the materiality of the ephemeral at the center of her work, questioning meaning-making and manufactured limitations through her multiple practices. Alexis Wilkinson is the Director of Exhibitions and Live Art at Knockdown Center.
