Modfest 2021: A Face for Radio Video Series with Sarah LaDukeLocationInstagram Live
A virtual kickoff event for Modfest 2021: Radical Imagination, WAMC Northeast Public Radio’s Sarah LaDuke will interview artists and faculty participating in this year’s Modfest as well as check in with the staff of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center (FLLAC) during “Late Night at the Loeb.” LaDuke will give audiences a preview of what is to come and speak with the following:
- Chris Burney from New York Stage & Film will preview the Powerhouse Theater event Mexodus, a musical inspired by the estimated 4,000 to 10,000 enslaved people in the Southern part of the United States who pursued a journey into Mexico instead of looking north.
- Drew Minter, of Vassar’s Music Department, will discuss how imagination has shaped his teaching and practices as an artist during the pandemic as he reflects on the Fall Semester and his process for preparing for an upcoming virtual cabaret.
- Andre Bouchard, of Indigenous Performances Productions, will discuss how the Frances Lehman Loeb Art center will engage with more native artists and host an indigenous artists panel that will take place on February 4, as well as a visit later in the semester by DeLanna Studi and her devised play, And So We Walked.
- A representative of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center will discuss the upcoming exhibition, Women Picturing Women: From Personal Spaces to Public Ventures that will run February 6 through June 13.
