About the Grant
$15,000 to support A Marriage: 1 (suburbia) (MAP 2012), a new theatrical installation created in collaboration between Jake Margolin and Nick Vaughan.
About the Project
A Marriage: 1 (suburbia) is a hybrid installation of long-duration
performance, video, sculpture, drawing, and print work, a multifaceted
self portrait of the artists, resting somewhere firmly between visual art
and theater. Using representations of the artists' own actual, three-dimensional,
evolving marriage to re-define the terms and assumptions that govern the
national dialogue on gay marriage, A Marriage: 1 (suburbia) is an
immersive rumination on the question, "what does it mean to be in a
same-sex marriage in America now?"
