THE CREATORS PROJECT
JUNE 26 - MILK STUDIOS
New York, NY
Mira Calix is a featured artist on VBS. Tv/ Intel's Creators Project. The project event series—a roving global celebration—launches this summer on June 26, when The Creators rolls into 80,000-square-feet of display and performance space honeycombed throughout the legendary Milk Studios in New York’s Meatpacking District.
The event is going to be a groundbreaking combination of interactive art and installations, panels, workshops, screenings, and live performances. As much as The Creators Project is a digital archive of our digital world, it is also a testament to the enduring appeal of the Real. Many of the artists within the program explore the way that digitally manipulated images, sounds, and motions converge in real time, in real spaces.
My Secret Heart, Mira Calix's award winning installation commissioned by Streetwise Opera and created in collaboration with Flat-E and David Sheppard will be exhibited at the event. Mira will also perform a DJ set.
other artists on the bill include, United Visual Artists, Mark Ronson, Spike Jonze, Interpol, The Rapture and Gang Gang Dance
