Franklin presents : On the road with Dark Dark Dark
Franklin Arts Work (1021 E. Franklin Ave.) – Minneapolis, MN
8pm – $5 suggested donation
Come on time to catch mesmerizing music by local harp and ukelele duo Tête-à-Tête, and stay for a special concert with a slideshow and stories from members of Dark Dark Dark.
In the spirit of Fischer’s interest in travel and the mythological American road trip, local chamber-folk band Dark Dark Dark will give a special performance, interlaced with their stories of floating down the Mississippi river on homemade rafts, discussions of special projects (see below), and projected images of life on the road.
Debuting Franklin’s new program of live events, Franklin Presents, band members Nona Marie Invie, Marshall LaCount and Jonathan Kaiser will discuss their participation in “Swimming Cities”, an art boat project originating in Brooklyn, an upcoming film entitled “Flood Tide” in which they are the featured subjects, participation in major exhibitions (at Mass MoCA and Van AbbeMuseum), and collaborations with artists Swoon, Jay Heikes, Tim Piotrowski, Tod Seelie, Christian Rex van Minnen and filmmaker Bill Daniel.
For this closing event, Dark Dark Dark will perform amid the sculptural environment created by Fischer for “Few Landmarks and No Boundaries”, once more bringing the space alive with live music and stories of restlessness and adventure in celebration of the exhibition’s closing.
