Transmissão Fordlândia Opening Reception

Saturday, September 16, 2017, 3:00 pm
Former Ford Factory Buildings 1-4
Fordlândia, Brazil

A series of public performances, conversations, and interviews. Transmissão Fordlândia, organized by RADIOEE, is an apexart Franchise Exhibition.

Featuring work by: Gabriel Martinho, Angelo Madson, Véronique Isabelle

This event is free and open to the public. Sign up for a reminder.

The opening events will assemble community members in the Fordlândia Factory for artist performances and community dialogues, with presentations by community leaders, workshop participants, and local radio personalities. Transmissão Fordlândia explores the present conditions and history of Fordlândia, Brazil, through soundscapes and radio systems by local artists and musicians. Deriving inspiration from the Amazon's auditory ecosystem, Northern Brazil's vibrant musical heritage, and Fordlândia's fallen machines, the live broadcasts and month-long listening exhibition will feature site-specific sound works that explore how transit and transmission through river, roads, rubber, and radio shape contemporary ecosystems in the jungle city today.

Transmissão Fordlândia is on view September 17 - October 14, 2017, in former Ford factory buildings in Fordlândia, Brazil.
