Co-hosted by Non-Event and Washington Street Art Gallery, (the) co-incidence residency is based on an expanded view of what constitutes art, music, and the traditional concert. Following the example of the revolutionary arts community Black Mountain College, it will bring together a group of radical artists operating in the boundary-zones of their practice to take part in a residency curated as ‘social sculpture.’ Reflecting the values of experimental music, co-incidence will be allowed to grow organically, strongly influenced by the artists who attend: the directors simply provide a time, space, and loose framework. There will be encouraged but not required peer-to-peer meetings between artists in lieu of official lessons, the people attending will not be labeled as student or faculty.
In addition to being fully open to the public, there will be three concerts during the residency: 1) Welcome to Boston, 1/24/17; 2) From Far Now Hear, 1/27/17; and 3) From Sunrise to Completion, 1/29/17. Our Resident Artist is Michael Pisaro; our Guest Artists: Alexey Zaitsev, Ben Levinson, Carolyn Chen, Cindy Giron, Elizabeth A. Baker, Mike Bullock, and Sarah Pitan.
