Gertrude #2: Imaginary Game Soundtrack

30 Apr 2016 - 30 Apr 2016

Imaginary Game Soundtrack is the second event within the framework of GERTRUDE, the gallery’s interdisciplinary side-programme. In between exhibitions, Dürst Britt & Mayhew will invite makers from other cultural fields to activate the gallery space through for example dance, theatre, literature, music or fashion. These makers may be upcoming or established artists, but what they all share is an experimental attitude. By offering them a space where they can develop and present new productions, we aim to create a platform where different cultural disciplines are able to meet. The name of this side programme is inspired by the famous Gertrude Stein (1874-1946), legendary writer and patron of the Arts, who became well known for organizing salons at her Paris apartment that were frequented by artists, composers, writers, musicians and choreographers.

In this edition, artists were asked to give their musical answer to the question: How would an imaginary game soundtrack sound?
With: Catherine Biocca (IT/DE), Sarah&Charles (BE), Marguerite van Sandick (NL), Lieven Segers (BE), Frank Koolen feat. UMGEBUNG (NL), Reinaart Vanhoe (BE), Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert (BE), Sara van Woerden (NL) and Geo Wyeth (US).

After  Brussels, Ghent and Rotterdam, Dürst Britt & Mayhew will host the release of the Imaginary Game Soundtrack Album. An evening of live presentations of the soundtracks in the form of performances, video, an Art-Fitness session, interventions and installations. Grab a pair of socks at the merch stand. The Album is available in a limited edition (100 hand numbered copies).

A project initiated by Dutch artist Sara van Woerden and supported by the Mondriaan Fund. After The Hague the tour will continue in Berlin, Antwerp and Amsterdam. More info about the project at igsatour.weebly.com.

The programme runs from 8 to 10 pm on Saturday 30 April.
