RH Gallery in collaboration with Opalnest presents 'Autumn Intermission' - featuring a series of performance and music events which act as parallel happenings complementing the three major exhibitions opening this Fall at RH Gallery. Conceived by Gallery Director Rebecca Heidenberg and Opalnest Producer Helen Homan Wu, 'Autumn Intermission' will provide a site-specific experimental platform as a direct dialogue to the art works and to the distinct architectural acoustics of the Tribeca Gallery space.
In conjunction with RH Gallery's three major exhibitions - ‘Hunting and Gathering’, ‘The Savage Detectives’, and ‘188.8.131.52’, the Intermission program will showcase original performances by some of today's most exciting sound and performance artists, and influential music composers. On this rare occasion, audiences can experience the bridging dynamics between the intellectual abstracts of contemporary visual art with thought-expansive sonic and time-based gestures.
September 22 marks the debut of the series with Intermission 1, featuring composer Ben Vida and interdisciplinary artist Richard Garet, each performing solo acts to create an immersive sonic environment within the gallery space.
Autumn Intermission is curated by Helen Homan Wu
