Time: 6 - 8pm
Following the British Council #NetWorkResidency, we are delighted to showcase the project developments of artists Rita Adib, Maya Chowdhry, Mohamed A. Gawad and Tim Shaw in Net//Work, an online exhibition which runs from 4.5.21 to 7.6.21 on https://dasnetworkresidency.com.
To celebrate their achievements join us for the Net//Work @ DAS Online Exhibition Opening Event on 4th May 2021, which will take place on Discord between 6pm - 8pm UK time.
You will be able to chat to the artists about their projects, and practices, and attend two performative live events:
At 6.10pm Tim Shaw presents ‘Net Walk’, a series of online performance walks streamed to a specially made website. Net Walk explores sound, video and networked technology through walking, incorporating drop outs, distance, distortion, resolution and signal loss into the performance aesthetic.
At 7.00pm Maya Chowdhry presents a live feed of 'Galvanising Change' in situ at Hulme Community Garden Centre, Manchester. In addition the online audience will have the opportunity to experience a digital version of the piece.
‘How Can You Document the Look of a Lover?’ is a video performance by Rita Adib that investigates the relation between body and borders and how time can be perceived as the barrier.
Mohamed Gawad visually maps his research into the conditions that shaped a certain period of composer Dimitri Shostakovich's work, and the structural markers embedded in that period.
All the artists will be available to chat during the Discord event.
