Open Studio: Lisa Alvarado
Sat, July 30, 2022
11 am–3 pm
Floor 3, Susan and John Hess Family Gallery and Theater
For families with kids of all ages
Join 2022 Whitney Biennial artist Lisa Alvarado and the band Natural Information Society in the Hess Family Theater for a special performance and an artmaking project exploring sound.
Alvarado’s installation of suspended abstract paintings explores rhythm and pulse as a form of navigation. Her works in the Biennial consider the relationship between geography and the body in a moment of imbalance and transformation. In addition to being a visual artist, Alvarado plays the harmonium in the band Natural Information Society led by multi-instrumentalist and composer Joshua Abrams. The band’s performances are accompanied by Alvarado’s free-hanging paintings and use the artworks as a setting for a shared experience.
The Susan and John Hess Family Theater is equipped with an induction loop and infrared assistive listening system. Accessible seating is available.
Face coverings are required to attend this event. All attendees ages two and older must wear face coverings that cover the nose and mouth.
