A new partnership between Revolve Art Gallery and the Media Arts Project (MAP) will be unveiled in a Launch/Listening Party at Revolve on Tuesday, February 8th. These two organizations will join forces in 2017, and the party will celebrate the new relationship with performances, short talks, and announcements.
Colby Caldwell, director and co-founder of Revolve, explains, "After celebrating 18 months of REVOLVE opening its doors, I felt, after looking back at what was accomplished and explored, that it was important to keep a continued ear open to the community and it's needs. We had hosted a couple of events with the MAP folks, and felt a certain kinship, and for the most part, a like-mindedness. Moving forward, it seemed like an interesting move to partner and collaborate programatically. Wednesday's LAUNCH/LISTENING PARTY is an opportunity to share our preliminary ideas with the community."
The evening will feature entertainment and presentations from filmmakers David Raymond and Jethro Waters, dancers Constance Humphries and Sarah Baird, and Sonic Parlour.
Raymond and Waters will screen the trailer for an in-progress documentary, f/11 and be there, which explores the life and impact of renowned photographer Burk Uzzle, who is thought to have captured many of the last century's defining moments on film. Humphries and Baird will share short clips and discuss their upcoming dance festival, Frame + Form Screen Dance Festival, scheduled for February 25-26. Rounding out the evening, Sonic Parlour will invite the audience into an experience of "deep listening" as theremin player Derek Dominy experiments with sound.
The event is $10. Snacks and drinks will be available. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. Seating is limited, so reserve your spot online at Revolve now.
