In one of the best art shows in the area, SOMArts is hosting another Multimedia Garden Party called Night Light at their location in downtown San Francisco on July 19 from 9 p.m. to midnight!

This show features over 30 artists in two separately curated exhibits. As the night wears on, there will be live performances during the night from artists such as Jen Cohen, Sofía Córdova, and Pamela Z. To view a full list of artists, check out the event website.

 

In one of the live performances titled “Carapace,” by Mary Franck and Kadet Kuhne, SOMArts website describes it as, “an immersive, real-time audiovisual performance about the fashioning of the self expressed as ornate, unfolding architectural spaces.”

 

Furthermore, in a highly anticipated performance, Sofiía Córdova is going to be mixing identity, music, and art in a beautiful performance according to SOMArts:

 

“Sofía Córdova offers four videos and a live vocal and dance performance in which she embodies a history of diasporic Caribbean identity through pop music and iconography. The project revolves around a suite of original songs describing a future scenario during which an unidentified, catastrophic event has led to the decline of our current civilization and has radically challenged human existence.”

Some of these installations will also be outside, allowing nature and art to fully integrate together.

 

To buy tickets (which is a good idea, considering the line was incredibly long last year), visit Eventbrite and get your tickets for only $12!

 

If you cannot make the event, it will actually be broadcasted live on San Francisco’s public access station SF Commons (Comcast Channel 76, Astound Channel 30) and will stream online as well! So even if you cannot make it out to San Francisco, you can catch a glimpse of some of the magic taking place that night!
