Performance: March 9th, 7pm-12am
Superchief Gallery NY is proud to present “The Witness", a movement, sound and light art show featuring performances by Autumn Ahn, Kathleen Dycaico, Ariele Max, Cole, Gabe Rubin, and AMHARA REIN-BURROWES (XHOSA).
Autumn Ahn (b. 1986, Philadelphia, USA) completed a BFA in Oil Painting, Art History and Printmaking from Boston University. Her recent exhibitions include: Cine Tonalá for Fería ARTBO (Bogota Art Fair), Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; Centre National d’Art Contemporain-Grenoble; Istanbul Embassy, WRONG Biennale; Contemporary Istanbul; Maison du Portugal, Cité Universitaire, Paris; Art Basel, Miami for AIDS Action Committee; Montserrat College of Art & Design, and upcoming solo exhibition at The Chimney in Brooklyn, NY.
Her studio practice is largely multidisciplinary and research-based, using performance and video to address humanity's splintered relationship to histories and its fantastic capacity to layer meaning from disaster, rituals, and memory. Using both found and original imagery and sounds, her experiential pieces investigate the spectrums of distance present in live spaces through participatory content and materiality.
Kathleen Dycaico is a choreographer and artist living in Brooklyn, NY. Her work explores current dystopian end times through choreographed remixed mythologies; inherited internalized movement and the pleasure of breaking free to create anew.
Recent projects include Apple-Eaters, a solo show at UC Berkeley in California, and Authority Figure, a group performance at the Knockdown Center in New York. Authority Figure brought together musicians, installation artists, choreographers, and over 150 performers in a choreographic experience designed to challenge ideas of authority in our everyday lives. Authority Figure received press in the New York Times, The Fader, The Village Voice, and more.
She is currently a partner and Residency Coordinator at Otion Front Studio, an experimental performance space in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
Ariele Max is a multi-media artist, photographer and Dj. After receiving a BFA in photography from Lesley University in Cambridge Massachusetts, she moved to New York to explore different creative realms, such as video, installation art and movement based projects. Her work often combines live music, projection mapping visuals and choreography, speaking to our desire to connect both with others and with ourselves. Her 3 part series, Fear and Forgiveness, is an immersive sound and light performance piece focusing on anxiety, sexuality and identity. She has curated and collaborated with other artists and venues, including performing in Authority Figure at the Knockdown Center, Queens, New York, at Miami Basel, Florida, Pioneer Art Works, Red Hook, Stream Gallery, Bushwick, Mills Gallery, Boston Massachusetts, Culture Fix Gallery, New York City, and has editorials in Posture Magazines, Ladygunn, and Bullet magazine.
Cole is a brooklyn artist who produces future focused "inverted gospel" music. His performances are spastic and dramatic, showcasing a piercing falsetto and hyper sexual persona.
Gabe Rubin is a musician and filmmaker. His work has been shown at MIX NYC, the Brookyln Film Festival, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and MOCA Los Angeles, and explores themes of persona, transition and transfiguration.
AMHARA REIN-BURROWES (XHOSA)
Amhara will be DJing in between performances and during the last half hour of the night as people clear out.
She is a musician and Dj and will do this under the name Xhosa
