Québécois artist Keith Lorrain is curating an exhibition of 20 “indoor outside” art pieces oriented around the new “Avant Garden” artspace AT 144 Golden Hill with a performance of his deafeningly loud “Piece for Neodymium Magnets and Guitar” within the space at 10:00pm on Saturday the 30th after the Sweetport festival.
Lorrain is also curating a sound installation with composer Loy Fankbonner aka Edgar Restaurant of the Chinese Restaurants that day between 2-9pm as part of the “DADACACADUDU” Baldwin Plaza event otherwise known as “Faire des Echecs: Amplified Chess Fair, Keith Lorrain (Erotic Magnetism/Chance Cacaphony), Films du Duchamp.”
Lorrain will be amplifying a large tin foil chess set open to the public and improvising with amplified supermagnets and televisions. 50 televisions will play various Marcel Duchamp related chess clips the while Lorrain improvises with magnetic fields visually and aurally. Lorrain asks that to prevent damage people not bring credit cards, lap tops or cell phones within 10 feet of Baldwin Plaza or to the Avant Garden opening afterward.
Chess players can sign up at the Baldwin Plaza film tent before 2pm. Participants are required to sign a liability waiver.
