Rue Bainbridge: "Wintering", Video Premiere and Q+A

This event is expired.

Rue Bainbridge, the duo of Gryphon Rue and Benton C Bainbridge, exists in the intersection of expanded cinema and sonic art, and generate light and sound abstractions for collective healing and hypnotic pleasure. In the throes of winter 2021, Rue Bainbridge met in person to work together for the first time since their pre-pandemic performance at Roulette Intermedium; a one-year-to-the-day hiatus.  Join us for the exclusive premiere of their latest performance film, Wintering, followed by a live Q+A with Claudia Schmuckli, Curator of Contemporary Art and Programming. 

During the making of this new project, the artists occupied an abandoned restaurant in Tribeca, NYC. A lack of heat forced the artists to work in the mechanical room, caked with dust and rattled by street traffic overhead  In preparation for broadcast, they divided the space with a large scrim and installed a bespoke feedback system, using cathode-ray tubes as furniture, showing live feeds of the artists playing their modified instruments while bathing in sound and light.

This event is part of Virtual Wednesdays, a weekly YouTube broadcast bringing you unique viewpoints exploring diversity, resilience, and creative spirit in the arts as we aim to reframe our exhibitions and collections. View upcoming Virtual Wednesdays programs.

Rue Bainbridge is the first recipient of the Nam June Paik and Shigeko Kubota Video Art prize (2019). The project has been supported with residencies at spaces in transition: an Italianate palazzo that housed destitute millionaires, an abandoned 18th-century hotel favored by rock stars, and an officer’s house on a former military island. Rue Bainbridge have been presented by Roulette Intermedium, Pace Gallery, Hauser & Wirth, The Hepworth Wakefield, Slate Projects / Foreign Domestic, Center for Visual Music, Public Works at Governor’s Island, Andrew Freedman Home, and Shigeko Kubota Video Art Foundation. Projects are realized as immersive audiovisual performances, yielding single-channel artworks with decentralized provenance. Rue Bainbridge is supported by Andrew Freedman Home Artist-In-Residence program in The Bronx, NYC
