Produced by many contributors.

Join an intimate one-night-only performance by SCRAAATCH, a collaboration between artists E. Jane and chukwumaa (known individually as artists MHYSA and lawd knows) from a Sept. 6 webstream on wgxc.org live from Art Omi in Ghent. Combining disparate forms of media including club music, synthesizer drones, and archival visual materials, SCRAAATCH create immersive multimedia environments using live electronics, DJ equipment, and video. Their performance at Art Omi will build on their recent body of work exploring ideas of conflict and hypervisibility within a technocratic surveillance state. SCRAAATCH SCRAAATCH make multimedia works and performances which focus on themes of communication across the Black diaspora, generational traumas, social upheaval, and the social conditions of urban environments. Their performances range from sets at warehouse raves that expand the boundaries of the DJ form to performances at festivals and arts institutions such as The Kitchen, MoCADA, Pioneer Works, and MoMA PS1 (New York); ICA (Philadelphia); Rewire (The Netherlands); and Les Urbaines (Switzerland). They teach classes on performance and sound at Harvard University, and recently attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. They were recent resident artists at the Center for AfroFuturuist Studies in Iowa City and were the 2023 artists-in-residence at Bemis Center for Contemporary Art in Omaha.
