ANOHNI | HOPELESSNESS | PARK AVENUE ARMORY

Anohni (fka Antony Hegarty)
Red Bull Music Academy Festival

Red Bull Music Academy and Park Avenue Armory are proud to present the world premiere of Anohni’s live show for her new album, Hopelessness, on two consecutive evenings in New York. Featuring original films, the celebrated singer, composer and visual artist will bring her politically charged masterpiece to the stage. With her haunting work in Antony and the Johnsons and her flooring contributions to the Hercules & Love Affair project, Anohni has established herself as one of the most fragile and fiercest vocalists around. Expect to see another breathtaking chapter to her story take shape for the first time ever on May 18th and 19th at Park Avenue Armory, as part of the Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York and the Armory’s Spring-Fall 2016 programmatic offerings.

Micro-Exhibition hosted by Terreform ONE | BASF Creator Space™

By 2050, there will be more than nine billion people living on Earth, primarily in cities. The needs of the growing world population for good living conditions, energy and food can only be met through innovations. Terreform ONE, a non-profit design group that promotes smart design in cities will host a series of exploratory and radical proposals for development of these smart cities. These proposals address the ecologies of cities, systems and objects at a number of different scales and incorporate contemporary bio-design methods.

A reception with a panel talk about the pieces and the trends they relate to will be held in the evening on May 28.

Demdike Stare (Modern Love | UK)
performing a new score commissioned by the British Film Institute to a screening of Benjamin Christensen's film "Haxan"

For our first sit down event in a church, World-renowned UK-based electronic musicians Demdike Stare perform a new live score commissioned by the British Film Institute to a screening of Benjamin Christensen's "Haxan", a silent Swedish/Danish film from 1922. "Häxan" (English title: Witchcraft Through The Ages) is a study of how superstition and the misunderstanding of diseases and mental illness could lead to the hysteria of the witch-hunts. Originally shown at the British Film Institute's Southbank Cinema in London, this rarely performed project reaches America for one weekend with performance/screenings in NYC, Knoxville, and Detroit only. Demdike Stare has long been known for their obsession with obscure cinema, and have recently contributed music to films such as "Joe" and "Kiss of the Damned."

Opening the event is another well known techno artist doing something completely different. Rrose will perform James Tenney's solo gong piece "Never Having Written A Note For Percussion". This piece is a powerful study not only of minimalist composition, but also the importance of the room and environment that a performance, or just pure sound, takes place in, and a potent example of the kind of experimental tendencies that make Rrose one of techno’s more fascinating figures.

OUT OF HAND: MATERIALIZING THE POSTDIGITAL

"In today’s postdigital world, artists are using these means to achieve levels of expression never before possible – an explosive, unprecedented scope of artistic expression that extends from sculptural fantasy to functional beauty.  'Out of Hand' will be the first major museum exhibition to to consider the impact of these new, revolutionary methods of computer-assisted manufacture on fine art, design, and architecture, and will introduce the public to the imaginative expression that these emerging processes enable."
