Artists Respond: Tomeka Reid Performs "Airs for Eliza"
Chicago-based cellist and composer Tomeka Reid performs an intimate recital (July 7, 2016) in response to Fo Wilson’s installation, Eliza’s Peculiar Cabinet of Curiosities. In this performance, Reid expertly combines composed vignettes and spontaneous improvisations for a highly personal reaction to Wilson's work.
Reid is seated on the porch of Eliza’s Peculiar Cabinet of Curiosities, a full-scale structure on the grounds of the Lynden Sculpture Garden (on view June 6 through October 30, 2016, and seasonally thereafter). The cabinet is both wunderkammer and slave cabin; it imagines what a 19th-century woman of African descent might have collected, catalogued and stowed in her living quarters. Informed by historical research, Eliza expresses a hopeful African American past, present, and future through a collection of found and original objects.
Eliza's Peculiar Cabinet of Curiosities is a collaboration with the Chipstone Foundation. Reid's recital is part of a series of programs sponsored by Chipstone and the Lynden Sculpture Garden, in which four artists/collectives were commissioned to respond to the installation.

DJ Food - O Is For Orange
'"O Is For Orange" is the sound of weathered tape saturation, detuned analogue synthesisers, vinyl crackle and machine hum. It’s also the look of unfocused, flickering lenses, mirror image filters and blurry grain embedded into film. Unofficial fan films sit alongside experimental animation, public information shorts and even the odd official video. Material that Boards of Canada took inspiration from blends with their own work as well as many that they inspired.'
This set was originally played at 'A Few Old Tunes', London 20th June 2013, a mix of Boards of Canada related, inspired, and sampled tracks/videos.
