And Sometimes…
The Space is Full of a Previous Space

a world premiere

A four part series conceived of and organized by current Deering Estate artist-in-residence Gustavo Matamoros as part of his yearlong residency. The program consists of a series of experimental collaborations with established intermedia artists using new technologies to combine site-specific recordings, local myth, language and archival content from the Subtropics collection.

This project is funded in part by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation through the Knight Arts Challenge. 

This event will take place indoors at the Deering Estate Theater located at the Visitor Center. Admission to this program is free with RSVP on the individual evening program listings on Eventbrite.
