Performance Art Event "Kahn. Islander."

Artistic Path from medieval Estonia to Roosevelt island

Performance art show celebrating the works of an Estonian-born American architect Louis Kahn.

In 2016 an Estonian art critic Heie Treier published a book "KAHN: The Islander" exploring the motivations, and subconscious inspirations behind Kahn's work. She elaborately focused on medieval Estonian architecture and analyzed how Kahn's birthplace might have influenced his creative work. In collaboration with five New York-based artists, we'll explore how our physical surrounding can change artistic perception. Throughout the evening you'll be a part of four different artistic numbers inspired by Kahn's architecture, including the recently opened Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park.

Performers: Diina Tamm (movement), Valev Laube (sounds), Evan Basta (sounds), David Rothenberg (words), Jaanika Peerna(drawing).

Wine and hors d'oeuvre will be served.
