Link & Pin in conjunction with En Route Productions presents Verstehen, a unique performance series and “Dreamscapes”, a mixed media exhibition by Emily Rankin. Verstehen explores various approaches to sonic/visual improvisation, focusing on methods of conversation between two artists of different mediums, reflective of how we, as humans, communicate with and understand each other.

Each of the five, 1 1/2 hour performances will take a unique approach to real-time creation of multimedia art in front of a live audience. Both the sound and visual components will be directly influenced by each other by a series of conversational “rules” defined by the artists. The resulting work will be displayed as a part of the gallery exhibit. Tickets for the performances are available at Event Brite.

Please mark your calendar to join us at the gallery for a FREE ADMiSSION artist reception on July 14th featuring the various works created during the performances.   Artists will participate in a Q/A and discussion on the experience at that time.
