Revolution. Two marks in rotation was a collaborative performance by MPA and Amapola Prada that took place in conjunction with the exhibition Directing Light onto Fist of Father, co-curated by Alhena Katsof and Dean Daderko.
With a working relationship that spans more than 6 years, MPA and Amapola Prada will present their first-ever public collaboration, Revolution. Two Marks in Rotation. In their actions, MPA and Prada seek the edges of antagonism, permissibility, and collaborative movement.
