What is shared, what is offered

What is shared, what is offered
Thursday, June 8, 2017
ICI Curatorial Hub

401 Broadway, Suite 1620
FREE and open to the public

Artist Chloë Bass and composer and writer Bill Dietz will continue the series “What is shared, what is offered” as they express their thoughts on the questions: what do we allow with our displeasure? When do acts of refusal become exquisite?

For this Hub event at ICI, they’re going to play a game. Each artist has selected a series of images that the other has not seen. As the images are revealed one by one, Chloë will respond to Bill’s selections, and Bill to Chloë‘s, producing an instinctive conversation that leads to larger truths.


This event is free and open to the public. To attend, please RSVP to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) with SHARED in the subject line.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Chloë is a 2017 - 2018 Workspace resident at the Center for Book Arts, and a 2017 studio resident at Triangle Arts Association. Her projects have appeared in recent exhibits at CUE Art Foundation, Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Project Space, The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, the James Gallery, and elsewhere.

Bill Dietz

Bill Dietz is a composer and writer, based since 2003 in Berlin. From sounding the facade of Le Corbusier’s Unité d’habitation in Marseille to orchestrating echoes across city blocks in Manhattan, his work traces genealogies of publicness and the performance of listening. He is co-chair of Music/Sound in Bard College’s MFA program, and is currently Guest Professor of Sound at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne. With Woody Sullender he co-founded and edits Ear │ Wave │ Event. In 2015 Edition Solitude released a monograph on his “Tutorial Diversions,” and in Fall 2017 a book accompanying his work L’école de la claque will appear.
