There is almost not an interval

February 9, 2019 - February 10, 2019

Event Navigation

We will walk along an unplanned route, departing from HRLA at the end of the Golden Dragon Parade (3pm) on Saturday February 9th, and then again at 3pm on Sunday February 10th. Each walk will begin in silence, with conversation arriving in response to the territory covered and the pace of walking. Live audio from the walks will be streamed to HRLA for the duration of each walk—join us for the walk, or stop by the gallery to listen in.

There is almost not an interval (lifted from Gertrude Stein’s 1926 mapping of a continuous present “Composition as Explanation”) approaches the formal components of attention (beginning, ending, duration, suspension, subject, object) across a range of scales and distances. Seeking to “reconceptualize lurking as listening” as Kate Crawford proposed in 2009, we talk now (and probably later too) about the role of memory, anticipation, projection, and transience in forming the attentive listener. De-synchronized and displaced, Intervals describe the contact between separated speeds, tonalities, rhythms, and subjects; between interior and exterior, public and private, here and there, now and then—punctuated by events and waiting, covering distance and duration in steps.

*note that Chinatown streets will be closed until 4pm on Saturday February 9th for the parade. Arriving via public transportation or rideshare is recommended on that day. (a map of road closures can be found here)
