BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Fluid Culture, the 2011-12 arts, media and
lecture series presented by the University at Buffalo Humanities
Institute, will present a free, public waterfront-related arts
event May 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the Marine A Grain Elevator, at "Silo
City" on Childs Street at the intersection of Ohio Street.
The event will feature the following art work employing several
-- "Demon Girl Duet" by Millie Chen, professor and chair of the
UB Department of Visual Studies, a "sonic-video duet" that
juxtaposes and interweaves separate but simultaneous journeys on
rivers of mythic proportions.
-- "Cargill Grain Animator" by architect and UB alumnus Seth
Amman, which uses stop-frame animation, digital reproduction and
historical records to re-present Buffalo's massive Cargill Superior
Grain Elevator, a 1,000-foot-long storage facility constructed in
1915, 1923 and 1925.
-- "Fata Morgana" by Buffalo video and installation artist Jody
Hanson, and "Where Away Is," a dance piece choreographed by Angela
Lopez, who works at the intersection of dance and technology. It
will be performed by Collective Collective, an intermedia
performance group that focuses on site specific sculptural-,
movement- or installation-based presentations.
