Platform: OptoSonic Tea @ the Parrish
Enjoy an evening of live visuals and live sound performance interacting with the architecture and landscape of the Parrish. Curated specifically for the Museum by OptoSonic Tea founders Ursula Scherrer and Katherine Liberovskaya, the durational and site-specific event will feature 8-10 visual artists performing live in different areas inside and outside of the Museum building while 8-10 live musicians and sound artists perform, coordinated and spatialized by composer and Diapason Gallery founder/director Michael J. Schumacher.
Platform is an open-ended invitation to a single artist or artist collective to consider and respond to the entire Museum as a potential site for works that transcend disciplinary boundaries, encouraging new ways to experience art, architecture, landscape, and community. An innovative, artist-driven approach to programming that activates the myriad spaces and grounds of the Parrish,Platform has featured projects including time-based art, performance, sound installation, and participatory programs.
For Platform 2019, the Parrish Art Museum is presenting a project by the New York City-based artist collective OptoSonic Tea, founded in 2006 by Katherine Liberovskaya and Ursula Scherrer to explore the interaction of live visuals and live audio. The two-part project comprises OptoSonic Echoes, a sound installation at the Museum from August 15 to October 31, 2019; and the September 27 performance at the Museum.
The project is organized by Corinne Erni, Senior Curator of ArtsReach and Special Projects. Presented in collaboration with New York City-based Harvestworks.
