LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division) to present two Frame Rate programs as part of the Festival.
Carolina Caycedo's film Apparitions (a video produced for her recent show at the Huntington Library.) Developed through a joint collaboration between the Vincent Price Art Museum and the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, Caycedo’s Apariciones / Apparitions reconceptualizes spaces within the Huntington through African and indigenous spiritual and dance practices from the Americas. In this work, dancers embody past entities returning to the earthly realm. Caycedo worked with choreographer Marina Magalhães to develop gestures inspired by the Candomblé religion and the goddess Oxúm, a deity of water, pleasure, fertility, and sexuality.
Cole James' audio Southern Sound. Archived and collected sound from 5 generations of matriarchs. Within this piece the artist discusses the parameters of gender with their mother, great grandmother, and niece. The sound was collected in Atlanta and South Carolina over the course of 5 years.
Unearthed-Words Like Bodies is a 2min and 19sec sound work created using composed and collected sound and spoken words.
Between What We See And What We Say collaborative site specific installation by Galia Linn and Amanda Maciel Antunes. Between What We See and What We Say is an on-going multidisciplinary installation and performance series that reclaims the female body as a vessel of experiences, the conflation of time and space, and the process of personal excavation. A configuration of diverse elements will activate the space as a sacred, though non-religious, site of reflection.
Blue Roof Studios resident artists Beverly Morrison, Galia Linn, Adele Kandarian, Terri Klass, Jacqueline Palafox, and Sarah Gail Armstrong will open their studios for the event.
