On Thursday, July 7th, The Standard and art collective/free art school Bruce High Quality Foundation University will host Listening Club: A Night of Sound Art, Music, and Performance in the Penthouse of The Standard, East Village.
It promises to be quite an evening, with works from four artists who make use of sound in some form of their work: experimental poetry by Yanyi Luo, an interactive sound performance by Benjamin Santiago, a live performance by Jaimie Warren, and a set from DJ George Costanza. Sound, it seems, is as malleable a medium as paint, and for these four artists, it is just one in their arsenals.
A perfect example is the performance artist Jaimie Warren, who cut her teeth in Kansas City before making the move to New York three years ago. Her work draws deep from the well of American pop, blending horror movies, drag culture, Broadway musicals, and Renaissance paintings into a kind of mash up fever dream.
Bruce High Quality spoke with Jaimie to get a sense for what we can expect when she performs in the Penthouse.
