27th – 30th November 2012
Though Slovenian capital Ljubljana will have an average temperature 4°c this November, it does boast the fourth SONICA, Festival of Transitory Art. The annual showcase of MoTA – Museum of Transitory Art – takes place in various locations, and will, as is customary of SONICA, offer a varied programme including audio-visual performances, interactive and public urban installations, lectures, workshop, projections and club nights.
For this year’s theme the organisers have chosen ‘Third Culture’, which is described as an ‘offspring of science’ – art that combines technology, science and popular culture to appeal directly to the masses. SONICA’s guest curator for 2012 is Earl ‘Tengan’ Drilon, a young artist from The Philippines who composes, acts, makes films and performs the occasional installation, mostly within the underground art scene in his home town of Manila.
The first of 2012′s pre-event shows took place on 13 October, and included American composer Marina Rosenfeld performing her 2008 work ‘Teenage Lontano’. For more information on furthur pre-event shows and to check out the Festival itself, visit MoTA’s website at www.motamuseum.com.
