Ian Winters'
Summer, Winter, Spring

Opening Saturday, January 13, 2018 from 5-8pm

Exhibition continues through Saturday, January 27, 2018

About the show

Summer, Winter, Spring is a live film and time-lapse performance in three movements which explores the radically varying physical rhythms and seasons of San Francisco’s UN Plaza and mid-Market street corridor through a combined film, performance and live music score created using 2 years of time-lapse performances in UN Plaza.


About the project

Led by media artist Ian Winters, Summer, Winter, Spring combines a video and sound installation that opens Jan 13th and runs through Jan 27th, 2018 with a live performance on Friday, Jan. 26th, and Saturday, Jan. 27th at 8pm.  Both explore the radically varying human and natural rhythms of UN Plaza and the mid-market street corridor of San Francisco in a series of three movements based on respective seasons. In addition to aesthetic aims, Summer, Winter, Spring witnesses the deeply contested public space of San Francisco’s UN Plaza – which embodies many of the fault lines running through our current social, economic and political landscape.
In addition to Winters, other key artists and collaborators include choreographers Daiane Lopes da Silva (Kinetech Arts), paige starling sorvillo(blindsight), Mary Armentrout (Milkbar) and composers Heather Frasch and Evelyn Ficarra along with live percussion by Suki O’Kane and additional performance by  Norman Gee, plus many guest performers in the films.
