Jan 26, 2021 - All-day Event
Beginning January 26, we invite you to watch a special recording of a commissioned performance (2021, 30 min.) by Silver the Void in the installation Nicole Cherubini: Shaking the Trees. Silver the Void is an improvisational music/art project of artist Susan Jennings, who makes sculptures and plays those sculptures with her husband, Alexander Ross, and daughter, Faye Ross. Jennings installed new sculptures for the latest iteration of Nicole Cherubini’s exhibition, Shaking the Trees. For the performance, Jennings added Nicole’s son, Malachi Cherubini Purcell, on harp.
The performance was recorded in Nicole Cherubini: Shaking the Trees on January 7, 2021 at the Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College. Video by Chromoscope Pictures. Sound by Frank Moscowitz.
