Ari Marcopoulos’s photographs and videos capture the rhythm and feel of diverse youth-oriented subcultures from snowboarding to underground music. His honest portraits depict, as he has stated, “something that just stands for life lived.” This evening, he brings together musicians from the electroacoustic improvisation scene, including Orphan, Mirror/Dash, and Yellow Tears for a night of performance and noise.

My Turn invites artists to create programs for the Whitney’s public that are an extension of and informed by their own artistic processes and methods. Taking their contributions to 2010 as a point of departure, six Biennial artists explore key aspects of their practice to create distinctive evenings of performance, discussion, demonstration, and engagement.
