Art Off the Wall: Swoon’s “Submerged Collaborations”

June 12, 2014

6:30–9:30 p.m.

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

Swoon presents Submerged Collaborations, a night of film and performance. The evening begins in the Cantor Auditorium with a screening of Flood Tide, a fictional film set within Swoon's Swimming Cities project on the Hudson River and directed by her frequent collaborator Todd Chandler.

The film is followed by a talk with Swoon and her collaborators on several large-scale projects, who will provide insights into their work and how an ambitious community can create the synergy to expand possibilities for action.

Finally, join in a silent procession from the auditorium to the Cantor Rotunda for a performance in sound and light created in conversation with Swoon's new, site-specific installation Submerged Motherlands. The performance features The Submerged Motherlands Orchestra, with singer-songwriter Mirah, musician Marshall LaCount (of the bands XXXPRSNXXX and Dark Dark Dark), Todd Chandler, the band North America, and violinist Chloe Swantner.
