Native Strategies 5 launch @ Pieter Performance Space, Jul 17

15 July 2016

Native Strategies 5: ‘Music Issues: Bodies of Sound’ is launching at Los Angeles’ Pieter Performance Space on July 17.

Co-directed by artists Brian Getnick and Tanya Rubbak, the NS series returns following a two year hiatus with its fifth issue, co-curated with Jules Gimbrone and featuring a collection of conversations, images and essays by artists who “use their bodies as sounding material or treat sound itself as a non body: uncontainable, interpenetrating, and inherently queer.”

The journal follows a 2014 group performance and immersive installation at LACE, co-authored by Getnick and Rubbak, called N(enter)S and part of a developing developing theory about the intrinsically collaborative aspects of performance and design called a ‘live archive’.

Contributors include Odeya Nini, Oscar Miguel Santos (Sister Mantos), Luke Fischbeck (of Lucky Dragons), Anna Luisa Petrisko, Jules Gimbrone, and Erik Avery among others.
