“futureLOVER is a performance about the exploration of a modern man: fragile, vulgar, nostalgic. It is a dance of objects and memory, confession and solitude…events in search of masculine codes that are rarely found. Make your own. DIY.”

In describing his work French artist, Ben Evans, states:

“My work situates itself between performance and installation. I call it performance because it is not easily defined as theater nor simply labeled as dance. Collaborative by nature, I seek to work alongside other artists, and am deeply influenced by other mediums, notably architecture, sculpture, and photography. A recurrent theme in my work is a search for the incorporation and co-operation of these mediums. In this way, there often exists a direct rapport with the space in which I perform (oftentimes a non-theatrical venue) and the architecture and objects therein. The process of making work fascinates me, and so the personal experience of being in this process often finds its way into the performance itself. While I don’t always focus on identity as a theme, inevitably the work is often emotional and tends to reflect a certain sense of self, and a quiet experience of the live moment.”

The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art is a dynamic venue dedicated to the presentation of significant art of our time. Through an innovative program of regional, national and international exhibition and performance, the museum inspires and educates its community and visitors from around the world to explore the forefront and evolution of contemporary art.
