Patriots Opera / Forced into Femininity / Blair Summers

Join us at Resonator for a night of performance by artists from thingNY (NYC), Jill Flanagan from (Chicago), and Blair Summers (OKC)

$5-10 donation encouraged for the touring artists.

July 16th, 7pm-10pm

'Patriots' 

  http://www.thingny.com/patriots.html  A half-hour piece of music-theatre has become an all-too-real reflection of today's bad behavior surrounding issues of immigration and national identity. Young and Pinto collaboratively created the text, music, and staging, scoring the piece for their own voices, violin, percussion, a turntable, samples, and lots of cardboard boxes. In …Patriots…, instrumental music alternates with sung and spoken words, zany and humorous topical quips alternate with personal, pointed critiques of the political zeitgeist, fully notated sections merge into structured musical and textual improvisations, and tonal harmonies mix with startling, untraditional musical effects.

 Forced into Femininity  https://hausumountain.bandcamp.com/album/heterochromea   Jill Lloyd Flanagan’s performance Forced into Femininity has devolved from being an emotional torture anti-drag act into her present condition of serving as as electronic drum set made out of various children’s keyboards. The music remains about the ecological death of the earth, The burden of shared grief set at our feet by capitalism, transphobia ad animal cruelty. She has released “Heterochromea” on Hausu Mountain Records and in the works is a new release “Erraticism” On Pop Nihil. She was also in the bands Coughs, Learned Helplessness and currently plays in CB Radio Gorgeous in Chicago.

As a result, ingrained elements of American sport febrility activate a space for queer dis-identification; appropriating majority culture as a means to fashion anti-normative identities and forms of resistance."

April 2nd Friday Art Walk: Lisette Chavez "Cafeteria Catholic"

April 2nd Friday Art Walk: Lisette Chavez "Cafeteria Catholic"

San Antonio print artist Lisette Chavez makes her Oklahoma debut with a presentation of "Cafeteria Catholic", a printmaking-based installation exploring her relationship to the religion she grew up with and has wrestled with her entire life.

As she puts it on her website:

"I don’t always believe in God, I forever question my faith. Rather than leaving religion altogether, I pick and choose Catholic teachings that interest me and suit my lifestyle. In my youth I was taught to suppress my ideas, not to draw attention to myself, not to date boys and never told about “the birds and the bees.” Because of my strict Catholic upbringing, accepting my thoughts and being myself is a constant battle."

Guest DJ: Mauro Dourado

2nd Friday Art Walk: Garrett Young & Katelynn Noel Knick

  • 1010 North University Boulevard Norman, OK, 73069 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
Screen Shot 2018-02-06 at 1.52.36 AM.png

Join us at Resonator (1010 N. University Blvd) from 8 - 11 p.m. for the closing of Garrett Young's show "Temperance" and for the opening of Katelynn Noel Knick's "You're in My Bubble."

TEMPERANCE: "The works included in TEMPERANCE reflect a period in the artist's life ripe with self-reflection, patience, discipline, and restraint. It's representative of a time of growth, a time of letting go of self-destruction and learning to embrace a different path. For me, instead of the uptight and prudent, "serious" work one might expect, this mindset gave way to an exploration of the weirdest notions of my mind, allowing me to dive into queerness and comedy. This chapter of my life is more about celebration of having lightness in the dark, rather than austerity or restriction."

YOU'RE IN MY BUBBLE: “A selection of works that playfully re-evaluate abstract painting through scale and space. Knick’s work is investigating the questions ‘What if you could step inside of an abstract painting?’ and if so, ‘what would it be like?’"
