TRUST ME (2010)

TRUST ME (2010) For TRUST ME, Alava met individually in one of two museums in New York City with eleven participants who responded to her open call (which was sent out in April 2010). Participants agreed to wear opaque glasses during the time Alava performed one-on-one verbal descriptions of artworks they could not see. Photographer Jason Schmidt was invited to document Trust Me as the project was taking place. On May 14th, 2010, eleven performances took place during nine consecutive hours. On October 15th, 2010, TRUST ME's presentation and post-performance event will be hosted at the Cervantes Institute in New York City. Participants will meet each other and see for the first time photographs taken by Schmidt during their individual walk-throughs with Alava. TRUST ME's participants include visual artists, performers, poets, the director of the education department of a major art museum, writers, art critics, a museum educator and a MFA student. They described their experiences as a heightening of the senses; rebirth; entering a different world; and something to be experienced at least once in a lifetime.                                                                                                                                                                                 ARTICLE on TRUST ME by art critic Jonathan Goodman published by FronteraD: "GEMA ALAVA: BRAVE NEW WORLD": http://www.fronterad.com/?q=gema-alava-un-mundo-atrevido
