Members Only: Field Recordings with Laura Bernstein

Thursday, Jun 06, 3:30 pm to 5 pm
At CMA, 103 Charlton Street, New York

Join exhibiting artist Laura Bernstein in our Bridge space! Laura’s installation, Hybrid Ecologies, takes inspiration from The Book of Miracles, an illustrated manuscript depicting miraculous phenomena and awesome apocalyptic visions of the 16th century.

Members will get an exclusive chance to tour the exhibition with the artist, and then create their own sound recordings in the space! Tell your own story of a butterfly migration, an exploding volcano, or a hybrid beast! These recordings will be featured during future workshops in the space.
