Alejandro T. Acierto, “a matter of relation,” 2019, video with sound 5:05 minutes

we continue to sustain ourselves is an evening long performance with professor/artist/musician Alejandro T. Acierto, Ammie Brod, Zachary Good, and Ryan Packard. ┬áThe work comprises of two contrabass clarinets, viola, percussion, and interactive media. Working with feedback as a broadly defined phenomena, the experience becomes a way to advise other forms of relation and being – where bodies intersect, play, and intervene on and with technological systems built as extensions of themselves.

Professor Acierto describes the performance as a “meditation for queers of color, feedback becomes a metaphor that articulates our orientations as it registers our proximities.”

The evening is a program as part of Studio Art Sessions: 2019 Department of Art Faculty and Staff Exhibition on view in Space 204 through October 18,2019.
