Last weekend’s Migration year opening reception – and end-of-summer opening of Reanimation Library – was jammed. Wall-to-wall people made it hard to view the work of our 15 contributors, as well as the many migration-related books and artifacts. So we hope you’ll return during regular gallery hours for a quiet study of what’s on hand.
Lado Pochkhua, Artist-In-Residence, opened the doors to his onsite project, The Anatomy of Georgian Melancholy, about his ten years in a settlement of Georgian refugees from Abkhazia. Many guests brought their own stories of refugee and immigrant life. Ami Yamasaki’s Voices-Feather Composition, after two weeks of ceaseless cutting and pasting, was complete and she inaugurated it with a brief sonic performance, starting with the sound of feathers and layering sound on top of it for a mesmerizing experience. She’ll give a full performance at Proteus on September 29. Very beautiful.
