SAM Remix celebrates the opening weekend of Ancestral Modern: Australian Aboriginal Art from the Kaplan & Levi Collection along with the last month of Theaster Gates: The Listening Room, with a late night party.
The night starts with DJ J-Justice spinning global beats, hip hop, soul and more to keep you movin’ all night long. Two of Seattle’s greatest performance writers go head-to-head with two actors in three rounds of competition we’re calling Storytelling Spoken Word Slam. The Record Store is back! And in the Listening Room Gallery with Theaster Gates’ installation, a DJ will be spinning beats from the Dr. Wax record collection. Seattle Phonographers Union will be remixing ambient sounds collected throughout the museum into a live soundscape in the Native American and Aboriginal Galleries while cellist Paul Rucker creates “Sonic Interpretations” live in the Ancestral Modern Gallery. The ever-popular “My Favorite Things: Highly Opinionated Tours” will be lead by Brenda Croft, Australian artist and curator at the University of South Australia; Amanda Manitach, John Feodorov and Matika Wilbur, Seattle-based artists; and The Librarians of the Art Lending Library, among other.
