Utagawa Hiroshige, Flying Cranes (Hikaku), 1860s. Gift of Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, Jr.. RISD Museum, Providence

In dialogue with the current exhibition Former Glory, Providence-based artist Kelli Rae Adams will offer a durational performance as a reflection on the continued celebration of Victory Day in Rhode Island. Juxtaposing a repetitive creative act rooted in Japanese folklore with the symbol of the American flag, she will engage in an active, extended meditation on peace as a means of inviting renewed consideration of the holiday’s designation.
