On April 25th, 2019, dancer and choreographer Hussein Smko delivered a solo response in movement to the exhibition, Without a Solitary Object of Vision. Broken into a series of short 'conversations' with the artworks, Smko's choreographed interventions and improvisations explored the multiple textures, forms, and materialities of the site-specific works created by Samuelle Green and Amina Ahmed.
