Pieter Virtual Resident Artist Leyya Mona Tawil is the director of Arab.AMP – a platform for experimental live art and music by artists of the SWANA (Southwest Asian and North Afrikan) diaspora and our allied communities. Arab.AMP celebrates the plurality of SWANA voices operating in futurism, the Avant Garde and transgressive forms. Our AMP Gathering 2020 will be virtual this year, and features time-based digital work by Sholeh Asgary, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Jr., Mike Khoury, Doris Bittar, and the duo of Yasmine Diaz and Donia Jarrar.
On June 30, we premiere an interactive webpage that allows the work of these artists to “gather on the page” – to exist in time with one another and also with the audience-viewer that must activate and design their experience of the work in real time. We hope that this experiment for coming together remotely will invoke some version of ‘all our voices at once’. We encourage you to live stream your interaction with the Gathering 2020 site and post variations as you wish.
This event is FREE and made possible with support from the California Arts Council.
