The Speculative Frontier
Curated by Brel Froebe and Benjamin Schultz-Figueroa
Inspired by Stan Brakhage’s The Stars Are Beautiful (1974), a sound film that cycles through mythological explanations for the cosmos in dozens of permutations, the curators of tonight's event devised an exploratory text that drew from science fiction, structural anthropology, and deep-space physics. They then approached artists from a wide range of disciplines to create new work in response to this cue, resulting in a series of projects--performances, music, lectures, films, and videos--that navigate across the Speculative Frontier, the boundary between the known and the unknown.
Expect to see and hear: transmissions from Apollo 8, burning fluorescent tubes, black metal, alchemy, ghosts, gods, cartoons.
Participating artists include, among others:
Salter, Snowden, and Post
Brel Froebe and Benjamin Schultz-Figueroa are interns at Light Industry.
Tickets - $7, available at door.
