LMAKprojects opens A Fold in the Fabric, its season-long media performance, screening, and exhibition series, with an evening of media works at the incomparable MonkeyTown venue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. A Fold in the Fabric will showcase artists working along the axis between media and material. These artists explore the interpenetration of live presence, mediated experience and objectness through works of film, sound, video, installation and media performance.
MonkeyTown’s unique environment, a theater in the round in a room built of images, provides us with the opportunity to explore this material-media axis from an exciting vantage. Here, light and image become architectural building materials for space and structure, while sound can project planes of force as well as conjure sonorous objects. Shifting levels of presence and deferral, as well as real and virtual space, are folded and woven together into an intricate tapestry of experience.
