Sophie Kahn & Lisa Parra: Body/Traces
Level 4 through December 16

Illuminating the physical presence and disappearance of the body, this
work addresses the questions: What happens to the body in motion when
it becomes a still image? And what becomes of that image when it is
returned to the moving body whence it came?

All Exhibitions open Monday - Saturday, noon - 6 PM
Free + Open to the Public


Following the Rensselaer Holiday Concert and the installations closing
on Wednesday December 16 at 6 PM, EMPAC will go dark for a few weeks.
However, we will be right back in January to announce everything
happening during the Winter / Spring of 2010. Given that it is the
holiday season, though, it cannot hurt to give you a taste of what to
expect (mark your calendar!):

Jeremy Wade: there is no end to more
Thursday January 28 + Friday January 29
In a bold and violent juxtaposition of movement, text, animation and
video of manga (Japanese comics) drawing, choreographer Jeremy Wade
takes a playful and cynical look at Japanese kawaii (cute) culture,
exploring its ubiquitous influence on the world today.

Wayne McGregor | Random Dance: Entity
Friday February 26 + Saturday February 27
Entity, by Wayne McGregor/Random Dance, is a breathtaking performance
blending video on three screens, highly-charged dancing and a
soundscape created by Coldplay and Massive Attack collaborator, Jon
Hopkins, and award-winning composer Joby Talbot.

Dancing on the Ceiling: Art and Zero Gravity
Thursday March 18 – Saturday April 10
In this exhibition, performance, film and lecture series, contemporary
artists use a variety of strategies including parabolic flight,
helium, rigging, digital special effects and other tricks of the eye
to explore the experience of weightlessness on earth.

The OpenEnded Group: UPENDING
with music by Morton Feldman played by NYC-based FLUX Quartet
An EMPAC Commissioned Project
Friday March 26 - Sunday March 28
After two years and many many months spent in-residence at EMPAC, The
OpenEnded Group premieres their new work UPENDING. This is an evening
length work that combines breathtaking 3D computer animation with a
new gutsy EMPAC-produced recording of Morton Feldman's first string
quartet by NYC-based FLUX Quartet. We've never seen anything quite
like this - come experience for yourself.

Music of Helmut Lachenmann
SIGNAL + JACK Quartet with Brad Lubman, Conductor
Helmut Lachenmann, Soloist
Saturday March 27
Brad Lubman's SIGNAL and the intrepid JACK Quartet perform a concert
of Helmut Lachenmann's music under the guidance of the composer. Don't
miss this rare US performance of one of the most influential living
European composers - an exploded musical language of risky,
nearly-electronic instrumental sounds recombined into elaborate,
intricate works that EMPAC's Concert Hall was built to articulate.

Friday April 30 - Sunday May 2
The second annual onedotzero_adventures in motion festival comes back
to EMPAC with an explosive showcase of internationally curated moving
image. Featuring ground-breaking short film screenings, playful
installations, spectacular live performances, feature length films,
vj/dj events and more.
