smART Power Residency

September 2012

in collaboration with The American Counsalate, Karachi

with Art Jones

As part of the Bronx Museum’s smART power program, Vasl hosted Art Jones, an American sound and media artist, for a month in September, 2012, in collaboration with the American Consulate, Karachi. Jones led educational and performance-based activities around Karachi throughout his residency, while developing his own work in collaboration with local artists, musicians and video makers. The collective workshop, directed by Jones, was a unique opportunity for all participants to fuse live music with video and performance media.

Artists working in diverse mediums such as painting, sculpture, photography and performance found a new form of staging their work that incorporated social engagement as a direct aspect of the art experience. The community fully embraced the dynamic presentations of video and audio collage that comprised of local and global images and sounds.
