On October 25, join us for Cultural Studies*, a benefit for Triple Canopy featuring two special performances. Violinist Sarah Neufeld (Arcade Fire) will play a solo set of original compositions. Musician Damon McMahon (Amen Dunes) and visual artist Tom Thayer will debut a new collaborative performance: a scripted abstraction, a narrated projection, a chance meeting at a banquet hall of harmonic characters and color forms. They will be joined by collaborators John Jines and Xander Duell.
Read a preview of the event at Artinfo: ”McMahon and his brother, Xander, are writing the music while Thayer and collaborator John Jines makes video loops and projections that will play across mirrors and screens at the Grand Harmony banquet hall. The project is likely to look something like Thayer’s theatrical installation at the Whitney Biennial earlier this year, during which he alternately projected videos and live animations, sometimes accompanied by his own homemade musical instruments.”
