Native Strategies: N (enter) S
For their summer residency at LACE, Native Strategies presents N (enter) S, a series of public performances of sound, speech, and documentation. From July 9 to July 31, audiences will celebrate the release of Issue #4: Dispersions - the act and sign of communication and witness the simultaneous generation and gathering of performance material for the forthcoming Native Strategies Issue #5: Music Issues - the privileging and negation of bodies of sound.
N (enter) S is a Native Strategies issue come to life within three-dimensional space. Throughout their residency, Native Strategies will invite over 30 artists to perform in the LACE galleries and enact the process of producing a journal. Audiences can literally step into graphic design and observe the act of creating and archiving content in real time.
July 11, 2014 - Native Strategies launches Issue #4: Dispersions and invites participating artists to engage with each other and audiences through dialog and performance. Artists include: Patrisse Marie Cullors Brignac, Robert Herbst, Elana Mann, Adam Overton, John Burtle, Guan Rong, A.L. Steiner, Taisha Paggett, Ashley Hunt, Addie Tinnell, Matias Viegener, Kate Durbin, among others.
Throughout the rest of their residency, Native Strategies utilizes the LACE stages to host performances and to stimulate collaboration between the often disparate artistic worlds of music and sound production in Los Angeles, generating content for Issue #5: Music Issues. Artists scheduled to perform include: Jules Gimbrone, Odeya Nini, Todd Lerew, Sister Mantos (Oscar Miguel Santos), Michael Anthony Ibarra, Dorian Wood, MANKIND (Chiara Giovando), Claire Cronin, Morgan Lee Gerstmar, Erik Avery, David James Paha, Lee Relvas and Lauren Bousfield, Corey Fogel, Xina Xurner, Jeepneys (Anna Luisa Petrisko), among others.
