About the Artists

A Gift aka Interruptor | Cristina Maldonado is a Mexican artist whose background in body movement lends a unique approach to her visual and conceptual experiments with video, sound, collage and performance. Her work unifies experimental theater, dance, participatory art, new and old media. Her topics are body, communication and intimacy. She creates experiential frames connecting installation, video and live action. She works alone or in collaboration with artists from different disciplines and has recently performed in Mexico, Portugal, Poland, Armenia, Romania, Finland, Cyprus, Germany, Russia and Czech Republic and now Minnesota, USA.

Museum of Portable Sound | Dr. John Kannenberg, MFA is a multidisciplinary artist whose work investigates the sonic geography of museums, the psychology of collection, the processes of making and observing art, and the human experience of time. John’s work has been presented across the globe including appearances at Tate Modern and the White Cube gallery in London, ZKM in Karlsruhe, Cairo’s 100Live electronic music festival, the First Glance video exhibition in Tripoli, and Neighborhood Public Radio’s American Life project for the Whitney Biennial and now Little Theatre in New London, MN USA.


Art by Appointment | Bethany Lacktorin is a performance artist, organizer, media producer and musician. Her practice studies issues and meanings surrounding identity, displacement and our connection to the land. With a deep history of performance art-making that reveals, renews and revitalizes places as sacred, Bethany makes spaces where we can learn how to express ourselves, be vulnerable, and share experiences.
