Performance of 'Quintet' at Southern Sonic, Contemporary Arts Center New Orleans by Cristina Molina

From the CAC's website: "Southern Sonic is a new festival at the CAC for audiences who seek new aural experiences. This weekend-long event will present local and regional artists working at the outer boundaries of experimental music, sound art, and sound-based visual art. With a host of world premiers and new collaborations, the festival will feature work that runs the gambit of the genre- from experimental hip hop to avant chamber music; from utopian installation environments to sonified architecture, and from remixes of vintage cinema to airborne music made by drones."

My collaboration "Quintet" with Philip Schuessler will premiere on May 11th at the CAC! The piece will be performed by the Versipel New Music Collective

TERRESTRIAL group exhibition at Revolve Gallery in Asheville opening May 2nd! by Cristina Molina


Rooted in the earthbound while gazing skyward, the Terrestrial exhibition stages human figures within shifting landscapes. Concerns for a changing planet resonate across the series as moments between earthly environments and human inhabitants are fragmented and re-configured. Moving across sculptural, print and 4-dimensional algorithmic works, the artists selected are linked by their crossing of mythical vision and grounded reality.

Cyane Tornatzky’s ‘Adrift’ series reflects Earth as our one planet, a fragile home adrift in the universe. Cristina Molina’s ‘The Matriarchs’ intersperses female identity amidst a disappearing South Floridian territory. Her series contemplates loss while maintaining that the feminine presence is tender, generative and powerful. Angela Ferraiolo’s ‘Beach & Pool’ presents figures in two swimming contexts, one natural and one artificial. These positions scatter and coalesce as the footage is processed through custom noise and sorting algorithms, then re-rendered to the screen. The result shows a struggle between order and chaos as pixel color positions begin to fall apart. Victoria Bradbury and Mark Hursty’s ‘Re-processed Garden’ is a fledgling ecosystem mediated by architecture, sensors and custom software.

Terrestrial is curated by Victoria Bradbury.
