Claire is joined for a six-day residency at Mount Tremper Arts by Marcos Balter, Doug Fitch, and Project& for development of Balter's new piece, "Pan."
Claire joins her close collaborator Doug Fitch and a stellar cast of New York performers! This being the first edition of Doug Fitch’s Art Gallery Variety Show, we begin in the bubble of comfort of our own little room – so nice to come home to – only to find certain outside influences more pernicious and pugnacious than one might have envisioned. The demons of disingenuity are swarming about, filling the void with fallacious authenticity and threatening our exceptionalist contentment. Following a story-esque through-line presented in songful vignettes and other musical vehicles, some of the city’s most talented performers and cultural barometers inhabit National Sawdust, offering uplift in this downful time.
On Thursday, March 2, David Nolan Gallery will host a musical performance with Claire Chase and Pauchi Sasaki in conjunction with a special installation of drawings by Jorinde Voigt. On view from February 23 through March 25, the installation contains new works from Voigt’s latest series, Song of the Earth. As part of this collaboration, Voigt prepared a series of reproductions of a vast 26-foot-long, multi-part drawing, The Shift (Song of the Earth) I-VIII(2016) which, in turn, were individually annotated and used by Chase as musical scores. Interpreting the imagery and colors within the work, Chase translates these visual cues as varying pitches and melodic shifts.
