Hudson Hall presents Nearly Stationary, a two-part, multi-floor exhibition, installation and performance event conceived by BESSIE award-winning visual artist, Barbara Kilpatrick. Opening May 7 to June 12, 2022, and spanning 20 years of sculpture, drawings, photographs, and collaborations with contemporary dance, the first-floor gallery exhibition leads to a second-floor installation of Kilpatrick’s costumes in Hudson Hall’s historic 1855 theater. Central to the installation is a newly commissioned dance work created by Rashaun Mitchell + Silas Riener, who, in a series of fourteen “events” from May 14 to June 5, perform new choreography amid, and in dialogue with, Kilpatrick’s costumes. Musicians will perform John Cage’s meditative String Quartet in Four Parts, the third of which provides the title for the work.

Nearly Stationary: Performance and the Still Object opens with a reception with the artist on May 7 from 5-7pm. Nearly Stationary: Rashaun Mitchell + Silas Riener premieres at Hudson Hall’s spring gala on May 14, followed by performances on May 21, 22, 28, 29 at 3pm and 5pm; June 4 at 5pm and 7pm; June 5 at 3pm and 5pm.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at or by phone at (518) 822-1438. For more information about the spring gala performance, email Director of Fund Development, Caroline Lee at
