Join us for an evening of performances by Lauren Bakst, Jesse Chun and Guadalupe Maravilla to complement videos on view as part of Next Wave Art’s Moving Body, Moving Study. This evening celebrates the opening of the November program, with videos by Lauren Bakst, Jesse Chun, and Kerry Downey and Joanna Seitz on view through Nov 30.

Engaging the BAM Fisher Lower Lobby as a space for reflection and refuge, this unique exhibition features three screenings rotated monthly, readings and public events, and newly commissioned print publications. September featured artists Patty Chang, Freya Powell, and Sable Elyse Smith. In December, we welcome artists Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Kevin Jerome Everson, and Gloria Maximo.

in the not not 
 

Much like the publication and video works accompanying this performance, in the not not announces and negates the role of the performer, again and again, using language to bring multiple kinds of sensing and sense-making to bear on the live. As Rachel Valinsky writes, “Bakst proposes that we strip and reexamine the conditions enabling performance’s viewability, to better trace the forms it takes, be that in our everyday experiences, intimate and personal relationships, memories, or on stage.”

Liquid Myths 
 

A collaborative sound lecture merging historic, mythological, and lyrical narratives and songs from South Korea and South America. Folk songs, bedtime lores, shamanistic traditions, and K-pop or Latin love songs mix in Liquid Myths, which contemplates tales of land, displacement, and mobility. By sonically mixing fragments of their cultural memories, Chun and Maravilla author a new kind of folklore, subverting homogenous, nationalist narratives, and opens up a transcultural geography of sound.
