Curator’s Talk: OptoSonic Tea

FRIDAY NIGHTS LIVE!

April 10, 5 pm - 6 pm

Tune into the third live streamed program from the Parrish!

Last September, the Parrish Art Museum invited OptoSonic Tea to present an evening-length performance, featuring 18 of the world’s most innovative video and sound artists to interact with the architecture and landscape of the Museum. The durational and site-specific group improvisation featured visual artists performing live in different areas outside of the Museum building, while live musicians and sound artists performed coordinated and spatialized works by composer and Diapason Gallery founder/director Michael J. Schumacher.  The spectacle allowed the over 400 visitors to experience the Herzog & de Meuron designed building in entirely new ways.

This Friday, Corinne Erni, Senior Curator of ArtsReach and Special Projects, will host a conversation with OptoSonic Tea founders, intermedia artists Katherine Liberovskaya and Ursula Scherrer, about the performance at the Parrish, their work during Coronavirus, and upcoming projects with Sarah Weaver from NowNets Art who will join the conversation. Images and a short video from the Parrish performance will accompany the talk, followed by a live Q&A.

OptoSonic Tea was conceived in 2006 as a series of salon-style meetings that explore various forms of live visuals and their interaction with live audio, followed by an informal discussion about the artists’ practices over a cup of green tea.

OptosSonic Tea @ The Parrish was presented on September 27, 2019 and was curated specifically for the Museum’s Platform series.

VISUAL ARTISTS included Benton C Bainbridge, Bradley Eros, Andy Guhl, Kit Fitzgerald, Asi Föcker, CHiKA, Chris Jordan (cj), Katherine Liberovskaya, LoVid (Kyle Lapidus and Tali Hinkis), and Ursula Scherrer.

SOUND ARTISTS included Marcia Bassett, Ranjit Bhatnagar, Shelley Hirsch, Laura Ortman, Emma Souharce, Michael J. Schumacher, Keiko Uenishi, and Shane Weeks.

 

Platform: OptoSonic Tea @ the Parrish was made possible, in part, by the generous support of the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, mediaThe foundation inc., and Sandy and Stephen Perlbinder.
Friday Nights at the Parrish are made possible, in part, by Presenting Sponsor:Additional support provided by The Corcoran Group and Sandy and Stephen Perlbinder.
