Torched and Scorched Live

posted at 11:53 GMT by M.River in /news/mriver

Vernacular Alien World Drawing Championship, Maryland

Ventana244 Gallery June 6 - 5-6pm 244 North 6th Street Brooklyn NY, 11211

As part of the Torched & Scorched installation at Ventana244, the artist MTAA and Raphaele Shirley presents two live performances in the gallery starting at 5pm on June 6, 2015

This event begins with MTAA’s Vernacular Alien World Drawing Championship II. In 2009, MTAA presented the world’s first Vernacular Alien World Drawing Championship in the Electronic Gallery at Salisbury University, Maryland. Six years later MTAA brings all the excitement and thrills of competitive alien drawing to Brooklyn for a one night 30 minute no holds barred melee. Prizes will be awarded and beer consumed.

Following MTAA’s participatory performance, Raphaele Shirley present a 20 minute immersive audio visual environment titled Blue line, running man, spinning circle. First performed at Postmasters gallery in 2011 and again at the Outpost Artist Resources in 2013, this work extends Shirley’s light sculpture series into a performative realm, building an immersive audio and visual environment that includes a rotating video projection-house, fog, water mist and improvised live sound by Laura Ortman on violin and Lynn Wright on guitar.

Both performances are free and open to the public. The exhibition Torched & Scorched with work by Ana Busto, Yifan Hu, MTAA and Raphaele Shirley continues through June 21, 2015. permanent link to this post
