Horizonte Live ART + Music featuring Latina artist Geraldina Interiano Wise accompanied by the MUSIQA Quartet hosted at The Glade Arts Foundation
April 7, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Latina Houston artist Geraldina Interiano Wise and Houston-based new music collective MUSIQA present a live painting and music performance of Annie Gosling’s The Blue Horse Walks on the Horizon at the Glade Arts Foundation in The Woodlands, TX. With The Woodlands’ thriving Latino community and The Glade Arts Foundation’s robust collection of Latin American art, Glade is an optimal venue for such a multi-disciplinary Latino-themed artistic experience.
Performance art and the harnessing of repeatable spontaneity were breakthroughs by artists such as Texan artist Robert Rauschenberg—whose Timed Paintings are a seminal source of inspiration for this project—and choreographer/dancer Trisha Brown who often collaborated with Rauschenberg. These art happenings were a part of a changing landscape of art in the 60’s, 70’s and early ’80’s.
This artistic collaboration came about from a shared value of decoding the arts, thus making them accessible to all. Annie Gosfield’s seventeen-minute piece for string quartet informs the gestural nature of Geraldina Wise’s abstract expressionism, which may look spontaneous, but has been choreographed through an immersion process that has yielded a unique artistic vocabulary—her visual code to the music.
After the presentation, a panel discussion will include MUSIQA Artistic Director, Dr. Anthony Brandt, artist Geraldina Interiano Wise, and Glade Curator Joseph Staley, to explore how creativity, cognition, and society co-evolves and co-exists. The discussion will be moderated by Rosemary Salum, editor of Literal Magazine, Houston.
