We are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of avant-garde composer, photographer, filmmaker, videographer, and Experimental Intermedia founder Phill Niblock (1933–2024). Niblock was scheduled to perform at e-flux together with Katherine Liberovskaya on March 28. Niblock’s lifelong dedication to image and sound leaves us with an indelible legacy, and we grieve the loss of a visionary artist. He will be sorely missed.

We would like to dedicate the winter/spring season of sound performances to him. 

This new season at e-flux features many brilliant artists: We launch in January with Alice Henry and the Collapse of the Western Plateau, a tragedy by Elizabeth A. Povinelli, accompanied by Thomas Bartlett, DM Stith, and Sam Amidom. In February, there will be a solo performance by Kevin Beasley. March will feature Spirit Catchers by Annea Lockwood, accompanied by Adrian RewLiz PhillipsSam Green and Sanna Almajedi. Finally, in April there will be a performance by Jad Atoui and Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe

Alice Henry and the Collapse of the Western Plateau with Elizabeth A. Povinelli, Thomas Bartlett, DM Stith, and Sam Amidon
Get tickets

Alice Henry and the Collapse of the Western Plateau, a live performance by Elizabeth A. Povinelli, Thomas Bartlett, DM Stith, and Sam Amidom, is a tragedy centered on the disavowed violence of extractive capitalism. It is set in a “post-collapse” world, where the distorted remnants of European sciences, industries, theologies, and armed forces have fallen. The sound design draws on Gregorian and Byzantine chants, as well as United States Christian devotionals, with elements referencing machine and earth sounds—including massive excavators, MRI machines, sounds of the inner earth. Neither apocalyptic nor redemptive, Alice Henry and the Collapse of the Western Plateau stages the stubborn sadism of western forms of knowledge, politics, and economy, and the irreducible difference between myth and rationality, as all and sundry take a bite out of Alice Henry.

Live performance by Kevin Beasley
Get tickets

Kevin Beasley lives and works in New York. He received his BFA from the College for Creative Studies, Detroit in 2007 and his MFA from Yale University School of Art, New Haven, CT in 2012. Beasley’s practice spans sculpture, photography, sound, and performance while centering on materials of cultural and personal significance, from raw cotton harvested from his family’s property in Virginia to sounds gathered using contact microphones. Beasley alters, casts, and molds these diverse materials to form a body of works that acknowledge the complex, shared histories of the broader American experience, steeped in generational memories.
