Judith Pedroza will recreate the block where she grew up in Mexico City in scale model with her work Marina Nacional 80. Visitors will be invited to help her expand the work throughout the evening by adding additional buildings and roads.
And Michael Trigilio will present Everything is Up. For the EVERYTHING IS UP performance at The Museum, multiple participants will occupy several of the upstairs galleries with a series of asynchronous fuzz drones. Using electric guitars and analog synthesizer circuits, sounds will be generated to repeat and reflect the unique character of The Museum's acoustic resonance and host to historical paintings of transformation, transcendence and epiphany. Michael will give two performances, from 6:15-6:45 p.m. and 8:00-8:30 p.m.
Michael is a founding member of the independent radio project Neighborhood Public Radio, which was featured in the 2008 Whitney Biennial. His work is currently on view at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, La Jolla location, as part of the Here not There exhibition.
