The Richmond Art Gallery and the Richmond Media Lab host a monthly evening of hands-on art, performance and electronic music making.
Join us for the FINAL SESSION of this monthly program with guest artists Alanna Ho and Elisa Medina for an interactive and collaborative evening using movement, sound, video, fashion, and music to invoke play and memory. Design a Mobius strip of various stories and landscapes to create your own audio compositions, try out an outfit that makes sound, and have some fun in the Art Gallery with projects inspired by the Eternal Return exhibition.
Free drop-in, all materials provided. Suitable for ages 14+
Reserve a spot to let us know you are coming via Eventbrite here.
