Tribeca Art + Culture Night: September Edition

Wednesday, September 26, 2018, 6:00 - 9:00 pm
291 Church Street, NYC

Join apexart and other neighborhood art spaces as we stay open after hours, with a special sound performance by Sto Len entitled Imaginary Waterscapes no.1 (for the islands of New York) at 7:00pm.

apexart is free and open to the public.

New Yorkers are surrounded by water and yet many of us have limited interactions with the actual waterways that surround us. In Imaginary Waterscapes No.1, Sto Len explores the sonic properties of water and electricity—both real and imaginary—through touch, sound, ritual, and movement. Referencing John Cage’s Imaginary Landscapes series, Len will use new and old technologies such as Bluetooth, solar panels, and digital wireless transmitters with radio, contact mics, and hydrophones to create a live sonic exploration.

Tribeca Art + Culture Night is a quarterly urban art festival taking place in 30 venues in Tribeca including non-profit art organizations, university galleries, design studios, alternative spaces, and fine art commercial galleries. This urban festival celebrates culture in Tribeca and is specifically designed to embrace the diversity of creative expressions from drawing and design to crafts and much more. The event brings the greater New York City community together around a program of exhibitions, performances, talks, and workshops.


Sto Len is a Brooklyn-based printmaker, painter, installation and performance artist with interests in improvisation and experimentation within a variety of media. His current body of work transforms the traditional printmaking art of Suminagashi (floating ink) into an experimental collaboration with nature and a site of discourse on environmentalism and art activism. Recent collaborations with pollution in the waterways of New York, Colombia, and Vietnam, have enabled his studio to become as large as a river and his practice nomadic and global.
