WATCH: CAC curator on 'Bodies in Urban Spaces'

CINCINNATI -- The Contemporary Arts Center is always challenging common ideas about art.

And now, they're giving you more time to explore the offerings at the downtown Cincinnati museum.

Steven Matijicio, curator of the CAC, said the museum is expanding its hours for the summer and offering new events for guests.

On Sunday, June 15, there’ll be a special performance called “Bodies in Urban Spaces.” It runs from 6 to 7 p.m.

Here's how the museum describes the event:

Austrian choreographer Willi Dorner will work with Cincinnati area dancers to present Bodies in Urban Spaces in downtown Cincinnati for two performances. Bodies in Urban Spaces is a moving trail of site-specific interventions, choreographed for a group of dancers. The performers lead the audience through selected parts of public and semi-public spaces. A chain of physical interventions set up very quickly and only existing temporarily, allowing the viewer to perceive the same space or place in a new and different way. As soon as it is assembled and perceived, the dancers and audience are on the run to a new space.

Matijicio sat down with WCPO to discuss the performance, the museum's summer programs and the “contemporary” take on art.
