Musician and composer Michelle Agnes Magalhães Comes to EMPAC

Musician and composer Michelle Agnes Magalhães worked with visual artist Clarissa Tossin to create a new work for “Shifting Center,” the upcoming exhibition at EMPAC. She spoke with Sina Basila Hickey for Hudson Mohawk Magazine about collaboration, working with archival instruments, and using the EMPAC sound space.

“Shifting Center” will be at EMPAC from November 3–18, 2023.
Prior to the exhibition opening, Beatriz Cortez’s sculpture “Ilopango, the Volcano that Left” departs Storm King Art Center, the site of its current exhibition, to embark on a three-day performative journey along the Hudson River to Troy. The volcano can be witnessed as it sails upriver from various viewing points on both shores and online through a livestream. There will be a welcoming reception at the Sanctuary on October 28.
