The Tune In Festival
11/6/21, 2:00 AM
The return of The Tune In Festival will feature more than 30 artists and ensembles over four days, coming together to pay respect to the time-honored tradition of music and poetry as sources of resilience, protest and inspiration. Curated by performance poet J. Ivy and pianist Lisa Kaplan in close collaboration with CAP UCLA Creative Advisor Kristy Edmunds.
For the festival, Jennifer created a music flm for experimental violin duo The Furies. Confronting humanity's impact on the climate and our place in the universe, The Furies's piece for the Tune In Festival is a meditation on the arc of history, from the primal dawn of civilization to an uncertain future.
Day 2: Friday, November 5 at 7PM PT
Eighth Blackbird: Singing in the Dead of Night by Julia Wolfe
The Furies: Did He Promise You Tomorrow

This iterative exhibition, curated by Sarah Umles, has since expanded to include many more artists, presenting work in expanded media including video, performance, net art, and social practice. Interstice has previously activated space at Franconia Sculpture Park (Shafer, MN), Focus Arts (Minneapolis, MN), The Residency Project (Pasadena, CA), and now MOTOR (Los Angeles, CA). MOTOR is a mobile site that operates within and around the topology of Los Angeles. Taking the sprawl, temporality, and modularity as points of ignition; MOTOR navigates the routes of non-standard methodologies in artistic production & its presentation. MOTOR transports events alongside the narratives/histories of its contingent location and communal engagement to exhibit the underrepresented and the complex.
