Discussion | Artists Talk: Experimental Landings


Exper­i­men­tal Land­ings is an exhi­bi­tion that inter­ro­gates how design­ers assert agency through the rep­re­sen­ta­tion, orga­ni­za­tion, and for­ma­tion of land. “Land­ings” is thus intend­ed to “acti­vate” a famil­iar archi­tec­tur­al term that rec­og­nizes the often bina­ry and dis­so­ci­at­ed realms of site ver­sus prop­er­ty, ground ver­sus ter­ri­to­ry. By shift­ing the term from noun to verb, the exhi­bi­tion seeks to repo­si­tion land as an active agent with a broad­er con­text, ter­ri­to­ry, and com­mu­ni­ty. By explor­ing its “medi­atric” poten­tial a crit­i­cal project may pro­voke and high­light land’s intrin­sic abil­i­ty to engage and inform broad­er socio-polit­i­cal and/or cli­ma­to­log­i­cal con­se­quences. Under­stood as an elas­tic and open-end­ed frame­work of con­sid­er­a­tion this col­lec­tive exhi­bi­tion of work will show­case how archi­tec­ture and land­scape exper­i­ments across “land” address new def­i­n­i­tions of for­mal prac­tice across sev­er­al the­mat­ics includ­ing arti­fi­cial earths, seed­ing resilience, imag­ing ground, and map­ping maintenance. Mod­er­at­ed by Jonathan Scel­sa and fea­tur­ing Deb­bie Chen, Zane­ta Hong, Emi­ly Knox, Michael Wen-Sen Su, Ambi­ka Phar­ma, Arous­si­ak Gabrielian, Fionn Byrne, Rafael Beneytez-Duran, Gillian Shaf­fer Lut­sko, Alexan­dra Bark­er, Lola Ben-Alon, Ari­ane Har­ri­son, and Marc Miller.

Jazz | Harlem Night Songs with Veteran Jazz Trombonist


When Craig Harris exploded onto the jazz scene in 1976, he brought the entire history of the jazz trombone with him. From the growling gutbucket intensity of early New Orleans music through the refined, articulate improvisation of the modern era set forth by J.J. Johnson, and into the confrontational expressionism of the '60s avant-garde, Craig handled the total vernacular the way a skilled orator utilizes the spoken word. He has performed with a veritable Who's Who of progressive jazz' most important figures - including Sun Ra, Cecil Taylor, Sam Rivers, Abdullah Ibrahim, Jaki Byard, Muhal Richard Abrams, David Murray, Henry Threadgill, Lester Bowie, The WORLD Saxophone Quartet, The Roots, RAKIM and the list goes on and on - his own projects displayed both a unique sense of concept and a total command of the sweeping expanse of musical expression. And it's those two qualities that have dominated Craig's past 15 years of activity, bringing him far beyond the confines of the jazz world and into the sphere of multimedia and performance art as composer, performer, conceptualist, curator and artistic director.

Performance | channel 1-3: Performance Art


In the multisensory performance channels, Yo-Yo Lin explores the intricate pathways of the chronically ill body. Lin understands us all to inhabit multiple bodies: ones made up of what we commonly think of as our physical body composed of its parts and organs, and others seemingly invisible, extending beyond the skin, taking the form of energetic fields and kindred relationships. In her work, she generates connections within and between these bodies through the concept of qi 氣, networked technologies, and disabled embodiment. As materials for this exploration, she uses and amplifies the connective tissue of her own body as well as the care relationships that bond two or more bodies together. Weaving audiovisual poetry, bodily music, and technology-mediated dance together, the performance invokes crip, cybernetic possibilities for how we imagine our bodies. To the audience, Lin poses a series of questions: What channels exist within ourselves that connect us to ancestral ways of knowing? Can pain be a portal, and care a feedback loop? What are the electrical currents that we signal to one another, reminding us that even in continued isolation, we are not alone? Isn’t virtual togetherness another form of astral projection?

Play | Richard III: Shakespeare Drama Outdoors


Tony Award nominee Robert O’Hara (Slave Play, The Public’s Barbecue) brings his sharp wit and storytelling genius with a bold new production of Richard III. One of Shakespeare’s most indelible villains, Richard is determined to be King. Following his lust for power and the throne, he manipulates, kidnaps, and kills all who stand between him and his throne, using brilliant words and dark charm to conceal his dismantling of government and justice. This masterful dive into the muddy middle between political genius and violent power grab arrives with piercing relevancy and electrifying drama.
