Bas Fisher Invitational Presents: an interdisciplinary solo exhibition by Nancy Garcia


Opening Reception: April 9th 7-10pm


Closing: June 9, 2011


Nancy Garcia's interdisciplinary practice incorporates choreography, music/sound, video, performance, image making, and new media. Often slinging the viewer to the edges of performative events, Garcia draws attention to the exultant body, considering it as a site as well as a vehicle for sound and movement.
For her first solo exhibition in Miami, Garcia shows a new body of work incorporating photography, a new video entitled Power Trio, and a concept audio compilation, Lover's Alarm Clock, for which she asked artist friends to "create a sound you want your lover's to wake up to." Each track will be downloadable and sharable as a smartphone ringtone at http://loversalarmclock.com, and be available for listening in the gallery.


To coincide with O, Miami Poetry Festival, Garcia is creating an audio walk, an experiential sound journey guiding listeners through a select Miami location. The audio file will be playable on most smartphones and portable media players, and will be available along with a walking guide at http://omiami.org and http://basfisherinvitational.com and http://nancygarcia.org on April 15.


Nancy Garcia was born and raised in Miami, and has been based in New York since 2000.   Her work has been shown at the Sculpture Center, Long Island City; Whitney Museum of American Art, NY; Roulette, NY; D’Amelio Terras Gallery, NY; De La Cruz Collection Project Room, Miami; New Langton Arts Center, San Franscico; Greene Naftali Gallery, New York; Movement Research at Judson Church.  She has also been featured in festivals such as Images, Toronto; All Tomorrow’s Parties, United Kingdom; and No Fun Fest, New York. As a musician she has performed in the US and abroad with noise band Monotract, toured as a solo performer, collaborated with various artists including Thurston Moore, and released a solo album entitled “Be the Climb” on the Ecstatic Peace record label.  In 2009 Garcia produced an epic interdisciplinary performance combining online video, and music from her album with choreography for the proscenium stage, commissioned by the Kitchen, NY.  She holds a a Master’s degree from the Interactive Telecommunications program within New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.

LMAKseries: featuring live performances of Kyle Bobby Dunn and Nancy Garcia.

Kyle Bobby Dunn will open the evening with 'intricately woven, dark blankets of sound capable of isolating the most optimistic of personalities'.
Nancy Garcia will close the night: she will whip the crowd into a frenzy.

LMAKseries furthers LMAKproject’s aim to integrate film, video, sound art, and media performance into the gallery’s mission and its vision of the contemporary landscape. One particular interest of the series is in exploring the ongoing inter-relationships between digital media, film, and music, whose practices may incorporate improvisation, computer processing, live interaction, narrative, sculptural and spatial aspects in ways that open our conception of both art practice and reception.

Kyle Bobby Dunn is a Brooklyn, New York based composer born in Canada in 1986. Working outside the realms of traditional composition for classical and perfected instruments i.e. piano, violin, cello - he specializes in arranged work for often large, dense and draining pieces of neo-minimalist and neo-romantic song-craft. His music seems to be about the untechnical aspects and importance of layering, the warmth of the disconnected, and the great channeling of memory and emotion. His work has been described as 'intricately woven, dark blankets of sound capable of isolating the most optimistic of personalities' and 'compositions that are patience incarnate.' He has released his music internationally on Kning Disk (Sweden), Housing (Canada), and Sedimental (US.)

Nancy Garcia is a New York-based artist who holds a Master's degree from New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program in the Tisch School of the Arts. Her work and practice utilizes various media, including dance/choreography, performance, printmaking, sound/music, drawing and video. For over a decade, she has recorded, composed and performed experimental noise/rock music and created choreographic works. She has shown her work at venues such as The Kitchen, Greene Naftali gallery, Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami, D’Amelio Terras gallery, KS Art gallery, Tonic (RIP), New Langton Arts, Dixon Place, West Nile, Movement Research / Judson Church, Knitting Factory, and throughout the US, Japan, and Europe, at festivals such as All Tomorrow's Parties and No Fun Fest. Nancy is currently working on several projects, including a new full-length performance and new music releases. Her new solo album, Be The Climb, is out on Ecstatic Peace records + tapes.

LMAKseries is curated by Louky Keijsers, Richard Garet and in consultation with Berlin based Andy Graydon.

I need more at The Kitchen & Ecstatic Peace records


Dates:
Mon Nov 02, 2009 00:00 - Tue Sep 29, 2009

I'm writing to request your support for an exciting new work! I need more is my new project consisting of a three-night performance at The KItchen in NYC (November 5th - 7th, 2009) and a new solo album entitled Be the Climb, which will be released simultaneously with the performance through Ecstatic Peace records + tapes. The project offers the possibility of experiencing one overarching choreography through both forms. For the piece, I draw inspiration from tropes found in noise, punk rock, and rock'n'roll music as a source for movement material, tapping my own involvement in both the worlds of experimental music and dance.

Today I am launching a fundraising campaign via Kickstarter.com. With this campaign, I'm trying to raise funds to pay all the talented and gracious professional artists involved in making this project come to life. So far the artists, performers, set and lighting designers, dancers, and musicians have been working for me without pay for months out of love and dedication to their art and the project. I know these are tough times for everyone, but our work continues and hopefully we can make it happen together. Follow the link to the campaign, where you can make a pledge and find out more about the project.

Via this I need more - Kickstarter project page you will find a brief video showing rehearsal footage, links to (unmastered) excerpts from the album, and descriptions of the various levels of contribution/pledges. From limited edition cassettes and CDs of previously unreleased material and handmade books with CDs, to custom ringtones, homecooked dinners, and drinks with the cast, we'll be giving gifts based on your pledge amount.

Here's the catch: All pledges must be made by November 2nd, 2009, and if the goal to this campaign ($1,000.00) is not met by that date, none of the money will be released. This is Kickstarter.com's rule.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me directly. Thank you!

All the best,

Nancy
