POST NEW | Ashland Mines: Blasting Voice
Between July 11 and July 28, 2012, New York’s Suzanne Geiss Company plays host to Blasting Voice, a performance series curated by the LA-based Ashland Mines. This is Mines’ first exhibition in New York and includes performance, sound installation, and visual works from a variety of contributors including Lizzi Bougatsos, Raul de Nieves, and Devonté Haynes, exploring the poetic and formal dimensions of amplification. On nine evenings throughout the exhibition Mines has organized 27 performances that will take place on a custom-built stage he designed in collaboration with artist collective Thunder Horse Video. To mark the occasion POST NEW talked with Ashland about his role in the series.
