Art & Art History presents: Paul Catanese; Century of Progress/Sleep
Colgate University’s Clifford Art Gallery and the Department of Art and Art History will host a workshop/residency with Paul Catanese titled Century of Progress / Sleep, February 18–26. The workshop/residency is free and open to the public, and it will feature a series of informal artist-led workshops, rehearsals, and open studio sessions with his ensemble, Gemma Godfrey, Julie Licata, Evan Runyon and Matt Sargent.
Century of Progress / Sleep will be performed April 4–6 in the Ho Tung Visualization Lab, Room 301 of the Ho Science Center.
Century of Progress / Sleep is a cross-disciplinary opera for voice, electronics, sea drum, ship's bell, tuning fork, and live-cinema scenography. This work imagines that inanimate objects, hyperobjects and hypothetical entities, having recently acquired consciousness, immediately reject rational systems for conceptualizing 'the nature of things' and instead adopt an intellectual posture of epistemological chaos emerging from mutative half-truths, mischaracterizations of science, and lawless theories of knowledge. This work navigates a terrain of texts, electronically processed vocals and software instruments resulting in a hypnotic, mirage-like soundscape.
