Location : Blanton Museum of Art, Austin, Texas
Age : 28
Saakred, a transdisciplinary artist with a focus in sound and live performance will be curating their original work in relation to their experience as both museum patron and employee. Using the concept of a museum as a microcosm for class, race and power inequities in the unchanging American landscape, Saakred discusses issues of security, visibility, access, facades of freedom, aristocracy and the role of art . Saakred will present four new works wedged between the all white work of minimalists Louis Nevelson and Mary Corse. All compositions are written, recorded, produced and performed by Saakred with a focus in MIDI production via Ableton 9 and Reason with additional live instrumentation for this one time performance.
Inspired by Mussorgsky’s monumental Pictures at an Exhibition, Sound Space’s roster of performing artists buzz, distort, rove, and radiate through the Blanton’s collections and building—creating a feedback loop between music and art.
