This coming Thursday, we'll be performing at the Phillips Collection as part of their end of the summer 'White Party', in conjunction with special exhibitions "Robert Ryman: Variations and Improvisations" and "Pousette-Dart: Predominantly White Paintings". We've been asked to put something together that is unique to this event, something we're calling 'Whiteout".
Part performance, part interactive sound installation, the piece will draw on the collective memories of this past winter's snowstorm, combining audience submitted photographs, video footage and audio messages that relate to individual experiences of the storm. To be a part of the sound/visual collage, call 202-464-2260 and leave a message with your personal story of the snowstorm. It could be simple and short, funny and crude, depressing and lonely, exhilarating, titillating, boring...whatever your experience was of living through the biggest blanket of snow in the city's history, tell us your story. Or, if you'd rather submit photographs, or video, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions will be completely anonymous and will most likely be cut-up and edited beyond recognition.
The End of Summer White Party will take place August 26th, 5-8:30 PM at The Phillips Collection (1600 21st Street, NW Washington DC) and is presented by the Pink Line Project. It will also feature interactive artworks by Kenny George and Alberto Gaitan and dance by Glade Dance Collective. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.phillipscollections.org.
