MK Guth’s video, photography, sculpture, performance, and exchange projects have been discussed in The New Times, Flash Art, the online edition of Artforum, and Sculpture Magazine and exhibited internationally. For Converge 45, Guth will premiere Choreography for Reading Aloud at the Reed College Library. This site-specific performance work and installation functions to activate a library, literary collection, bookstore or site with consumable texts of any sort. Performers are given texts from the site to read aloud creating a cacophony of sounds where stories collide with facts, theory, opinions, lists… Says the artist, “In this work the object that most often remains quite has the volume turned up.” Guth is represented locally by Elizabeth Leach Gallery, Portland.
