||One of the region’s beloved alternative multidisciplinary art spaces, A SHIP IN THE WOODS, has invited a stellar lineup of artists and musicians to perform and exhibit on May 18th with the goal of raising funds to support its inaugural music residency. In the spirit of adaptability, improvisation, and collaboration, SHIP is proud to honor our community of cultural producers with a diverse range of experiences dedicated to challenging convention and celebrating contemporary art.
A sanctuary for artists, musicians, and local creatives, SHIP is expanding its reach to present studio time, production, and additional resources for musicians and sound artists to explore new ideas and studio and underwrite the only music residency in San Diego.
Included in the day’s programming are sound and installation artists John Dombroski, Luminul, Sarah Hankins, Helixhand, Open Oscillator, Taser Island, and Chris Warren who will disperse and create resonant experiences throughout the grounds and on stage, imploring visitors to consider sound as
both medium and subject.
A powerhouse of women take the stage with a lineup of musicians including Brigid Dawson (Thee Oh Sees), Shannon Lay, Amenta Abioto, Kera, Amy Cimini, and San Diego’s favorite Kate Bush offspring, Baby Bushka.
The evening will end with a special performance by Jibz Cameron, a performance/video artist and actor living in Los Angeles. Her multi-media performance work as alter ego Dynasty Handbag has spanned 15 years and has been presented at such institutions as MOCALA, PS1, Joe’s Pub, The Kitchen, REDCAT, The Broad Museum, Hammer Museum, New Museum of Contemporary Art New York, among others. She has been heralded by the New York Times as “the funniest and most pitch perfect performance seen in years” and “outrageously smart, grotesque and innovative” by The New Yorker.
In the gallery spaces, Corona + Grize Projects will present their SHIP curatorial debut DITHER: an exhibition exploring the relationship between analog aesthetics and slow process captured, transformed, and dispersed digitally. Artists include local favorites Lora Mathis, Alex Miranda, Akiko Surai, and a new body of work by Julian Klincewicz. Additionally, C+G Projects is thrilled to welcome the work of New York based artists India K. and Whitney Biennial alum Tauba Auerbach.
From 1 pm - 10 pm, attendees can wander SHIP’s two acres of beautiful landscape including foot onsite for both lunch and dinner.
