Jim Jeffers & Lydia Grey, Micah Danges, Jessica Gath, Video Jam
Sound/Stages II
August 5, 2011

Vox Populi hosts a special summer party on First Friday with music, video and performance events by Jim Jeffers & Lydia Grey, Micah Danges and Jessica Gath.

Building upon the success of last summer’s event, SOUND/STAGES II is an exciting First Friday one-nighter channeling themes of collaboration and participation in music, video and performance. Lydia Grey and Jim Jeffers welcome audience involvement in their first joint work Remotely Functional. This live piece will be performed and re-performed throughout the evening, with Grey at Vox Populi and Jeffers 356 miles away, along the top of Nantucket Sound on Cape Cod.

Boston-based conceptual artist Jessica Gath (pictured) will present [W]Rapper, in which she accepts, wraps and returns objects to partygoers, accompanied by pulsing rap music. According to Philadelphia Weekly, Gath’s work “represents a kinder, gentler side of performance art that focuses on serving the public.” Vox Populi member Micah Danges also offers a service of sorts, transforming one of the gallery’s spaces into a slacker’s paradise, complete with pitch-perfect decor; vintage surf and skate video projections; Grateful Dead and boogie on the sound system; and a delicious summer drink mixed by the artist.

Finally, the Summer Open Video Jam is an opportunity – open to all – for emerging video artists and filmmakers to share their work in a renowned venue. Organizer Christopher P. McManus extends an invitation to this open mike night for moving image: “Bring your videos to Vox Populi Gallery’s August First Friday event and we will play them!”
