ALAN SONDHEIM: SOMATIC GHOSTING
Click to enlarge Dec 16, 2019 7:00pm
Multidisciplinary pioneer Alan Sondheim presents a lecture exploring his evolving practice.
 
Interweaving Sondeim’s practice across platforms, the lecture will explore the influence of the digital on the body and social and political spheres.
 
A pioneer of the virtual, Sondheim has worked for decades across music, sound and the visual. Drawing on a range of sources from his lexicon of digital objects and artefacts, this presentation will tour the territories and interzones of his practice, staking out ideas and sharing his unique perspective on our twenty-first-century conditions.
Alan Sondheim is a city-based new media artist, musician, writer, and performer concerned with issues of virtuality, and the stake that the real world has in the virtual. He has worked with his partner Azure Carter among others. Sondheim is concerned with the examination the grounds of the virtual and how the body is inhabited. He performs in virtual, real, and cross-over worlds; his virtual work is known for its highly complex and mobile architectures. He has used altered motion-capture technology extensively for examining and creating new lexicons of behaviour. His writing stems out of codework, a problematic style in which code substrates and surface content interfere with each other – in which, in other words, the textual body and body of text are deeply entangled. His current music is based on the impossibility of time reversal, on fast improvisation, and anti-gestural approaches to playing.

TUESDAY TALK WITH MARY GABRIEL AND REX STEVENS
Click to enlarge Talk Feb 04, 2020
Talk to accompany the exhibition '9th St. Club', featuring Helen Frankenthaler, Grace Hartigan, Elaine de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell.
—-
Gazelli Art House presents '9th St. Club' as part of its ongoing series of exhibitions exploring key art movements of the 20th century. The exhibition features works from Helen Frankenthaler, Grace Hartigan, Elaine de Kooning, Lee Krasner and Joan Mitchell, and is inspired in part by Mary Gabriel’s acclaimed book ‘Ninth Street Women’. Gazelli Art House is the first gallery to show these artists together in the UK, and the show follows the Tate Modern’s opening of a new room devoted to the work of Helen Frankenthaler, and a recent Lee Krasner retrospective at the Barbican. “It is pertinent to highlight these artists and draw on the parallels and ever-changing dynamics between the US, Europe and the UK today. As ever, we look to one another for reference within our own socio-political contexts, and are culturally in dialogue via the art each scene produces.” – Mila Askarova, Director of Gazelli Art House.
