Summer, Winter, Spring is a live film and time-lapse performance in three movements which explores the radically varying physical rhythms and seasons of San Francisco’s UN Plaza and mid-Market street corridor through a combined film, performance and live music score created using 2 years of time-lapse performances in UN Plaza.
Led by media artist Ian Winters, it combines a video installation that opens Jan 13th through Jan 27th, 2018 with a live film and performance on Friday Jan. 26th, and Sat Jan 27th at 8pm. Both explore the radically varying human and natural rhythms of UN Plaza and the mid-market street corridor of San Francisco in a series of 3 movements based on respective seasons. In addition to aesthetic aims, Summer, Winter, Spring witnesses the deeply contested public space of San Francisco's UN Plaza – which embodies many of the fault lines running through our current social, economic and political landscape.
Major collaborators include a devised time-lapse musical score by Heather Frasch and Evelyn Ficarra, percussion by Suki O'Kane and physical performances by choreographers Mary Armentrout, Daiane Lopes da Silva, and paige starling sorvillo and actor Norman Gee.
The project premieres at the SFArtsEd Gallery in the Minnesota St Projects at 1275 Minnesota St with an opening reception from 5p-8p on Jan 13th, 2018 , an artist talk on 2-4pm on Jan 20th,2018 and live performances at 8pm on Jan 26th and Jan 27th, 2018.
Tickets for the performances on Fri. Jan. 26th and Sat. Jan. 27th are $25 with a NOTA policy. The artist talk and reception are free and open to the public.
