Join us on December 7, 2016 for Aluna Sintana to celebrate artists Shige Moriya and Ximena Garnica, their expansive body of work and commitment to supporting other emerging artists. Since 1996, Shige and Ximena have led a variety of community programs providing affordable workspace, training and presenting opportunities for emerging artists at their home studio, CAVE, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Simultaneously they have developed, created and toured collaborative works ranging from sculptural, video, and light installations to photography, performances and publications. Their work has been shown in a variety of local and international venues including BAM, HERE, Joyce SoHo, The Brooklyn Museum, The New Museum, and The Watermill Center.
Aluna Sintana will honor acclaimed artists Laurie Anderson and Robert Wilson together with the visionary Alanna Heiss. The evening will bring together artists, friends, and art supporters at CAVE for an intimate seated dinner in a unique environment of installations and performances. The dinner will be followed by an after party event, offering additional guests the opportunity to meet and share with LEIMAY’s artists and ensemble at their home and workspace.
Aluna Sintana is the second benefit hosted by LEIMAY. The first, Hanasaka, took place on December 1, 2016, and honored composer Philip Glass together with Zachary Model and Juan Merchan. Click here for a short video from Hanasaka.
All contributions made to the Benefit will support LEIMAY’s year-round community programs and the production of LEIMAY’s new work, Frantic Beauty, premiering September 2017 at BAM Fisher.
