Night Sounds is a performance series that parallels the seven part sculpture-in-residence exhibition Night (1947 – 2015). Guests join the performer and program curators for a live performance on the Glass House campus. Night Sounds is guest curated by Jordan Stein.
Night Sounds #4 featured a performance by lucky dragons alongside the fourth installment of Night (1947 – 2015), a series of three sculptures by artist Vincent Fecteau.
lucky dragons is an ongoing collaboration between Los Angeles-based musicians Sarah Rara and Luke Fischbeck. Active since 2000, lucky dragons is known for an open and participatory approach to making music, radically inclusive live shows, and playful, humanistic use of digital tools. Fischbeck and Rara have presented collaborative work in many contexts, including the Whitney Museum of American Art (as part of the 2008 Whitney Biennial), the Centre Georges Pompidou, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, London’s Institute for Contemporary Art, The Kitchen in New York, REDCAT, MOCA, and LACMA in Los Angeles, the 54th Venice Biennale, and the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum, among others. The name “lucky dragons” is borrowed from a fishing vessel that was caught in the fallout from h-bomb tests in the mid-1950′s, an incident which sparked international outcry and gave birth to the worldwide anti-nuclear movement.
Night Sounds #4 was generously supported by a grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.
