> DESCRIPTION

Following on the success of DisEchoNance, ACE’s first event at the Times Square Gallery last semester, the committee will present a one-night exhibition event on Saturday, September 12, 2009. This event will kick off a series of programs to be organized by ACE and held at the Times Square Gallery over the course of the 2009-2010 academic year.

In collaboration with Phi Ngyen, Hunter MFA alumnus and Preparator of the Hunter College Art Galleries, ACE committee members Orit Ben-Shitrit and Laura Phipps have invited the five-person collective Dearraindrop and artist Liam Everett to use the Hunter College/Times Square Gallery as a laboratory for creating immersive environments through sound, music, video, painting, and sculpture.  The one-evening event will involve a four-channel immersive video, the soundtrack provided live by the audience and sampled and re-recorded in real-time by Dearraindrop, and a live performance, beginning at 8pm, of The Disappearance of Tal Ben-Yaccov, an original work by Liam Everett which includes a large format video projection.  Dearraindrop’s interactive performance will span the evening and introduce the audience to the Gallery’s space, as well as promote a synergistic relationship between Everett’s performance, and the space itself.  The inventive, creative process and multi-media installations of Dearraindrop and Liam Everett’s further multi-media, layered performance will provide a rare opportunity to engage the large space that the Times Square Gallery offers through an innovative and collaborative event.
