BOXBLUR / Catharine Clark Gallery
In 2021, BOXBLUR celebrates its 5th anniversary with an exciting program of dance, film, video, installation, and music in response to visual art projects. We invite you to give generously in support of our 2021 collaborations.
Spring and Fall 2021: San Francisco Dance Film Festival screenings at Catharine Clark Gallery.
May and June 2021: An original, commissioned dance performance choreographed by Catherine Galasso in response to the exhibit Doing and Undoing by Jen Bervin. Co-produced by BOXBLUR and San Francisco Dance Film Festival at Catharine Clark Gallery.
Fall 2021: Night Watch by Shimon Attie. A floating media installation about refugees, many of whom are LGBTQ and have found asylum in the US, presented on an LED screen on a boat on the San Francisco Bay. Co-produced by BOXBLUR and the Immersive Arts Alliance.
Fall 2021: Time Laps Dance by Shimon Attie. The debut presentation of a three-channel, immersive video installation loosely inspired by global, nativist political movements and by American film director Mel Brooks’ comedic representations of fascism. Organized by BOXBLUR at Catharine Clark Gallery.
Fall 2021: A performance by a violin and cello ensemble with a musical narrative that includes tangential, thematic, or topical connections to the realm of visual imagery and art, and thus touches on an interdisciplinary note. Co-presented by BOXBLUR and San Francisco Contemporary Music Players to coincide with Shimon Attie’s exhibit at Catharine Clark Gallery.
All performances and screenings are live and shown to an in-person audience.
A limited number of seats are available to meet San Francisco’s capacity limitations due to COVID-19.
