In June 2015 I was awarded a 2015 Performance Grant from the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage. I’m pretty blown away and very excited to get to work on this. October 2016 will see the Inauguration of The Philadelphia Embassy of the Kingdoms of Elgaland-Vargaland at Crane Arts. And the best part is, I get to work with some of my favorite artists who also happen to be some of my favorite people.
From the Pew Center Website:
“Composer Mike Bullock presents the inauguration of the Philadelphia Embassy of the international art project, The Kingdoms of Elgaland-Vargaland (KREV).
“The event will include an exhibition of KREV-themed videos and ephemera such as flags, stamps, and tableware, and a station for participants to apply for KREV “citizenship,” complete with passports. The culmination of the inauguration is a concert of electronic music and visuals, featuring performances by Bullock, Pew Fellow Bhob Rainey, Ian M Fraser, the Swedish group Sons of God, and conceptual artist Carl Michael von Hausswolff.”
Gallery hours will be held October 14-15 from 12-8 p.m. The opening ceremony begins at 2 p.m. on October 15, followed by the concert at 8 p.m. This event is free; please RSVP by following the link to the Eventbrite page from our KREV PHL page.
It’s an honor to be included in a frankly mind-blowing array of artists and organizations receiving grants and fellowships. Here’s the complete list.
