A temporary series triangulating multiple cities simultaneously, Expanded Cities hosted telematic events at Sediment Arts in Richmond, Virginia, Mexicali Rose in Mexico, and Curio Studio in Venice, California.
Commencing for the week on Friday 10.3, Expanded Cities featured a roster of visual and sound artists spanning geographies through a showcase of new media projects. The LA incantation included performances from local luminaries Devin Sarno, Suzy Poling, and Elle Mehrmand.
For the closing program on Friday 10.10, visual residues from Virginia-based musician Karacell’s performance were live broadcast from Sediment Arts at 10:30pm EST, syndicated with Randy Randall’s performance at Mexicali Rose, while multidisciplinary artist Elle Mehrmand performed within the saturated lights of Curio’s Venice storefront at 7:30pm PST.
A collaboration between London-based video, performance and light installation artist, Ela Boyd, and LA-based abstract light photographer Aaron Farley, Expanded Cities is an ephemeral light x space x time installation excavating new landscapes through explorations in new media.
