Test Pattern is a hybrid performance series that invites visiting artists to use the ICA auditorium as an experimental production studio, inspired by the legacy of public access TV and alternative video movements in the US.
During each week-long residency, the artists will collaborate with members of the local community, transforming the ICA auditorium into a space for music, movement, activism, and deep conversations. Each week will culminate in a live performance and broadcast.
Test Pattern presents the public with a unique window into the creative process, to observe rehearsals, participate in live tapings and online streams of the performances, and to later access each episode in its final form.
Test Pattern is curated by ICA Assistant Curator and Producer David Riley.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Reimagining audio from their LP The Tipping Scale as well as compositions recorded in 2022 as an artist in residence at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn, NY, Kinlaw amplifies the sounds of the choreography itself, integrating the movements of the performers into the overall composition. Beginning with gestures, the performance translates intimate memories into movement, spoken word, and sound.
