Negativland +SUE-C LIVE Double-Feature - We Can Really Feel Like We're Here / Stand By for Failure

Legendary sound collage group Negativland and “real-time cinema” visual artist SUE-C collaborate to bring you their latest audio-visual performance about our minds, our realities, and the evolving forms of media and technology that orchestrate our perceptions as we head into our next election: WE CAN REALLY FEEL LIKE WE’RE HERE. Negativland performs with video designed and produced by SUE-C, who appears virtually. We'll start the evening off with a one-time-only screening of the amazing feature film Stand By For Failure: A Documentary About Negativland (director Ryan Worsley) and then a Q and A with the group about the film. Immediately following the film, experience a live stage performance of Negativland in WE CAN REALLY FEEL LIKE WE’RE HERE accompanied by SUE-C's unique and immersive visuals. On Negativland “An urgent show by Negativland and artist SUE-C calls time on a tech dystopia that is as malevolent as it is stupid… to meet the terrifying contemporary moment… as the world slides incrementally into meltdown.” –The Wire Magazine “Negativland have made a rewarding career out of being prodigious consumers of media who then digest it and recontextualize it, emphasizing mediated reality’s crazy-making absurdity and the infinite malleability of perception and ‘truth.’” –Dave Segal, The Stranger “Negativland are proud subverters of culture, causing trouble while having fun.” –NPR Tiny Desk Concert On Stand By For Failure: A Documentary About Negativland “If you want to be inspired by individuals who dare to bust down the doors of art’s gatekeepers, then Stand By For Failure is the way to go.” —Film Threat “Few artists have logged as many hours on the battlefield of fair use, let alone questioned as persistently the associated legal constraints around intellectual property, as Negativland, whose sonic, visual and performance appropriations and parodies have challenged eyeballs, eardrums and moral standards alike since the late 1970s.” —The Wire “Forty-plus years of Negativland metamedia, recontextualized into popular feature length documentary entertainment format by Ryan Worsley. You’ve seen and heard it all! But you’ve never seen and heard it like this!” —Boing Boing Live MusicPT2H56M2024-07-31Negativland +SUE-C LIVE Double-Feature - We Can Really Feel Like We're Here / Stand By for Failure"Negativland +SUE-C LIVE Double-Feature - We Can Really Feel Like We're Here / Stand By for Failure"
