And we move

Conceived as a site-specific installation, And we move continues Jean Shin’s investigation into the nature of music and its production. The installation utilizes the display of clothing, a video projection on fabric, unwound audio tape, embroidery, and compositional scores on prints, to explore how music is visualized and expressed through movement of the body, and how sound can be imprinted onto a surface. The result is the creation of a multimedia installation. The title And we move refers to the phrase iterated by the conductor as he begins to work with the musicians and evokes the dynamic relationship between them. It also refers to the way in which music moves its listeners. more >>



Have pop culture and globalization co-opted the wonderfully expressive gestures of the black America female?  This is the question that Newsome explores in video and photography in Shade Compositions, one of two new works on view in the Project Room 

In the second work, Untitled (study for banji cunt), Newsome brings choreography for the first time into his expressive repertoire, working with one of New York’s top vogue dancers, Shayne Oliver (video loop, 8 min. and 10 photographs). more >>

In conjunction with the exhibition there will be a live performance of Shade Compositions on Tuesday June 24th at 7 PM in Location One’s Performance Space (20 Greene Street).
