Over refreshments and small bites, learn about the AAI program and meet new media artists from our 2020 artist cohort: Rashin Fahandej, Wendy Levy, Lori Hepner, Gabriel Kaprielian, Santiago X, and Ellen Pearlman.
Hear about how AAI engages digital and new media artists in work with local communities abroad to address social and environmental challenges all over the world. Artists in the 2020 cohort will be traveling to Austria, Brazil, Colombia, Kosovo, Peru, and Ukraine next spring.
About Matchbox Labs
Matchbox is an art+tech interactive lab series, hosted at CounterPulse with partners ZERO1 & Kinetech Arts, that seeds collaboration beyond discipline.
Designed as public practicum labs, Matchbox pairs creative technologists with dancers and choreographers to spark critical investigations and seed cutting-edge works.
Matchbox creates an opportunity for these two creative communities to find places of overlapping values, and serves as a framework for a more collaborative urban arts ecology. The public is invited to the labs below to join as project participants and viewers.
COMBUSTIBLE RESIDENCY OPEN CALL 2020 (deadline December 6):
Combustible is a lab for intersecting art practices from dance and technology. Artists are given space and time for the creation of innovative projects with the use of our state-of-the-art arts center. Throughout a residency period artists share their research through designed public experiences and events. Combustible carves a place to be deeply inquisitive and experiment on the edge of what is known.
