The Olana Partnership and Wave Farm’s WGXC 90.7-FM are pleased to announce Framing the Viewshed: Groundswell, a groundbreaking event, which features site-specific works in sound, text, installation, and movement. Over a dozen artists will reflect on and react to Olana as an ambitious and early environmental work.
Installation, performance, and participation from: DJ Spooky, Pauline Oliveros, Japanther, Eteam, robbinschilds, Bobby Previte, Maximilian Goldfarb, Greg Fox, Nadja Verena Marcin, David Kermani, Archie Rand, Nancy Shaver, Beth Schneck, and Cara Turett.
Olana’s 250-acre landscape was originally designed in response to its integral views— the “Olana Viewshed”— by Hudson River School artist Frederic Church. Groundswell audiences will explore the property’s undiscovered roads and naturalistic scenes as they encounter each project site.
Framing the Viewshed: Groundswell is co-organized by The Olana Partnership and Wave Farm’s WGXC 90.7-FM, and is made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts' Electronic Media and Film Presentation Funds grant program, administered by the ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes; as well as individual contributors including David Kermani.
