Premiere of Isolation to Creation Docuseries Airing – Guggenheim Works and Progress @ Online
Jan 27 @ 8:00 pm

Works and Process at the Guggenheim presents the premiere of Isolation to Creation Docuseries Airing on WNET’s ALL ARTS Wednesdays, Jan. 27, and Feb. 3, 10, and 17, 2021 at 8pm

This past Summer and Fall amidst widespread cancellations, Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, itself facing a shuttered theater, forged a path for artists to safely gather, create and perform together again. Pioneering and producing bubble residencies that have since been widely duplicated, over fifty artists entered eight Works & Process bubble residencies in rural Hudson Valley after an unprecedented period of isolation. To capture this journey, Works & Process produced a four-part docuseries Isolation to Creation, by filmmaker Nic Petry of Dancing Camera, to provide audiences with the rare opportunity to go into the bubbles and behind the scenes to experience the hope, joy, exhilarating physical struggle, and emotional challenges experienced by performers returning to the studio and stage. The series will stream nationwide on January 27, and February 3, 10, and 17, at 8pm ET, for free on the ALL ARTS app, allarts.org, and also air in the New York metro area on the ALL ARTS TV channel, lineups available here: https://allarts.org/everywhere/

“While it may be some time before we can once again see performances like these in real time and space, this year’s Works & Process affirms that even when circumstances are constrained, creativity can still take flight and soar.” –
The Wall Street Journal

“Works & Process has always championed artists and their creative process. Even though the pandemic put us on pause, we were adamant that we had to continue to fulfill our mission and creatively and financially support artists,” said Caroline Cronson, Producer of Works & Process. “With the pandemic rendering artists so vulnerable, we knew we had to forge a new path forward and share these truly unique and compelling journeys to a wider public, we are proud to partner with ALL ARTS to share these stories of hope and resiliency,” said Duke Dang, General Manager of Works & Process.

“We’re incredibly proud of the role we play as an amplifier and platform for the arts. So many arts institutions have either had to close their doors or find new innovative ways to present to their audiences this year,” said Co-Executive in Charge of ALL ARTS Diane Masciale. “We’re honored to be partnering with the Guggenheim’s Works & Process to bring Isolation to Creation to viewers across the country for free. It’s a perfect example of the beautiful collaboration and creativity that exists in the arts community, especially during hard times,” added Senior Director of ALL ARTS Joe Harrell.

Under a medical protocol developed with medical counsel Dr. Wendy Ziecheck, and ethical oversight provided by Dr. Robert Klitzman, artists isolated by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic gathered in quarantine to work together in Hudson Valley. In partnership with Kaatsbaan Cultural Park, Mount Tremper Arts, and Petronio Residency Center through jointly subsidized residencies, eight creative bubbles were created to incubate Works & Process commissions featuring diverse dance cultures, including Afrik, ballet, ballroom, break, flex, Krump, modern, tap, and vogue dance styles, and beatbox. Select projects were sequenced into filmed performances at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and audiences were invited to witness some of the collaborative work and receive real-time updates on Works & Process social media at Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube (@worksandprocess).

Works & Process at the Guggenheim
Described by The New York Times as “an exceptional opportunity to understand something of the creative process,” for 35 years, New Yorkers have been able to see, hear, and meet the most acclaimed artists in the world, in an intimate setting unlike any other. Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, has championed new works and offered audiences unprecedented access to generations of leading creators and performers. Most performances take place in the Guggenheim’s intimate Frank Lloyd Wright-designed 273-seat Peter B. Lewis Theater. In 2017, Works & Process established a new residency and commissioning program, inviting artists to create new works, made in and for the iconic Guggenheim rotunda. In 2020, Works & Process Artists (WPA) Virtual Commissions was created to financially support artists and nurture their creative process during the pandemic. To forge a path for artists to safely gather, create, and perform during the pandemic, in summer 2020, Works & Process pioneered and produced a series of bubble residencies that will continue into 2021. worksandprocess.org. Lead funding for Works & Process is provided by the Ford Foundation, the Christian Humann Foundation, Leon Levy Foundation, Mertz Gilmore Foundation, NYC COVID-19 Response and Impact Fund, Stavros Niarchos Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and Evelyn Sharp Foundation, with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.

“Without the weight given by a wound consciously realized, [one] will lead a provisional life.” — Robert Bly⁣

The Gift In The Wound highlights the work of artists who have confronted their fears, traumas, and shadows, and emerged on the other side with unexpected insights, treasures, and talents to share with and enrich their communities. The wounds explored vary from the physical to the emotional to the spiritual, and the media from paint, fabric, glass, and beyond. Each work celebrates an enduring process of transformation reflected in nature, in myth, and in our bodies.⁣

The Gift in the Wound is Noah Phillips‘ curatorial debut. Before beginning his residency at Flux Factory, where his work has focused on the intersections of folk ritual and innovative understandings of psychological “plurality,” Noah was working as a Peer Specialist in the New York City’s public mental health system. He is also a Licensed Master of Social Work and an organizer with the Institute for the Development of Human Arts, a training institute for transformative models of mental health.⁣

*The exhibition will take place at Flux Factory’s Garage Bay Gallery. In response to COVID-19, all visitors are required to wear a face mask and follow social distancing guidelines. We are committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment.⁣*

There Is Something Here looks at the components of filmmaking through the lens of the artist’s process, and the challenges of mastering artistic craft while wrestling with self doubt, lack of experience and fear of failure. Originally titled: Nothing to See Here, Carlos David TC leaves behind the self-deprecation that many artists experience to instead focus on celebrating the process of growth and exploration.

After a year of lockdowns, quarantines, and unfinished projects There Is Something Here examines the gap between a creative idea and its full realization, reveling in the uncomfortable but generative midpoint of the filmmaking process. From initial sketches, to editing, color grading, sound mixing and everything in between, there is something here and Carlos wants you to see it with him.

Carlos David TC’s solo exhibition features installations of unfinished, deconstructed, incomplete, raw, finished and mastered video work, conceived in collaboration as an Artist-in-Residence at Flux Factory during the global COVID-19 pandemic. The works will be presented via text, color waveforms, sound and traditional moving image. Some of the works include: My Quarantine Shoes, The Self* Tapes, Pass The Hours, Spencer’s Gift and the premiere of the trailer for his newest short film: Jevi from 9 to 11.

Jevi from 9 to 11 is a fictionalized documentary about a painter who works at a museum during the pandemic and is set to be released in October 2021. The short film is part of a series called Artist* from 9 to 5 which follows immigrant artists from “9 to 5” the traditional American business hours.
