Project Description

TBA @Disjecta: MPA, Akio Suzuki & Aki Onda, Dynasty Handbag

Curator: Chiara Giovando
September 12th, 2015 – September 18th, 2015

Curator-in-Residence Chiara Giovando opens her dynamic visual arts season with a collaboratively-curated series of performances as part of PICA’s TBA:15.

We are delighted to serve as a host site for PICA’s annual Time-Based Art Festival (TBA) this September as part of the 2015/2016 Curator-in-Residence season led by Chiara Giovando. During the week of the city-wide performance festival, Disjecta will house an ongoing installation by Los Angeles-based artist MPA and performances on three separate evenings by MPA, Akio Suzuki & Aki Onda (Japan) and Dynasty Handbag (NYC/Los Angeles).

Giovando’s 2015-16 program at Disjecta will consider an expanded notion of sound through historical experiments in musical notation, the exploration of new sound art practices, and by incorporating object-based works that elaborate on the way sound functions in architecture and installation.
