Vidiksis teams up with director Michael Durkin of Renegade Theater Company and actor Dan Higbee to create a stunning new work for movement, sculpture, and electroacoustic sound. The miniature painting Seashells by Angelo Pinto will be brought to life-size and formed as we follow the act of creation in the artist’s mind. Vidiksis will perform original music for found objects, percussion, live processing, and electronic sound.

Barnes in 1922 to “promote the advancement of education and the appreciation of the fine arts and horticulture.” The Barnes holds one of the finest collections of Post-Impressionist and early Modern paintings, with extensive works by Pierre-Auguste RenoirPaul CézanneHenri MatissePablo PicassoHenri RousseauAmedeo ModiglianiChaim Soutine and Giorgio de Chirico, as well as American masters Charles DemuthWilliam GlackensHorace Pippinand Maurice Prendergast, Old Master paintings, important examples of African sculpture and Native American ceramics, jewelry and textiles, American paintings and decorative arts and antiquities from the Mediterranean region and Asia.
