Gallery Hijinks is pleased to present this Friday the 13th a lecture by Renée Gertler and performance by Clint Sleeper and Audrey Love as Robot Versus Future.
Gertler is a San Francisco based artist and has shown in exhibition spaces such as Eleanor Harwood Gallery, Patricia Sweetow Gallery, Romer Young Gallery and Southern Exposure. She received her MFA from California College of the Arts and has had residencies at MacDowell and Kohler Arts and Industry. She was also the recipient of a Danish Arts Council Grant and a fellow at the Kala Institute. Her work delves into the magic of the natural world in terms of how we experience and understand natural phenomena; as well as how science can dissect these occurrences. Gertler’s lecture will focus on the themes found in the current exhibition in Gallery Hijinks, Visions of Yore, in conjunction with her work, as well as elaborating upon her personal artistic practice.
Following Renée Gertler’s lecture a collaborative piece by Robot Versus Future will begin around 8:30pm. RVF is made up of 2 artists, Audrey Love and Clint Sleeper, who have been combining their artistic interests and skills in technology, sound art, and video for 2 years as a collaborative duo. Their performance, entitled Embedded Transport, is a performance of pre-recorded sounds and images from transitional and transportive spaces. A live mixing of recordings from hallways & highways, tunnels & trains – spaces where the artists most often find themselves alone and pensive about the past. The piece utilizes instrumentation, found sound, projection, and a variety of playback devices to encapsulate the performers and audience in sound.
Join us for an exciting evening! Doors open at 7pm and admission is $10.
