Starting on Friday, June 13, Currents 2014, Santa Fe’s homegrown festival of new media, offers a stunning selection of video projection, interactive installations, multimedia art, panel discussions, and performances. New media artists Frank Ragano and Mariannah Amster of Parallel Studios, producers of Currents since its inception, have gathered a considerable amount of dynamic new works for the festival’s fifth year. The bulk of the installations are at El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe, but multiple venues host related events, including Projected at David Richard Gallery, a show of multimedia digital art by Matthew Kluber, Nancy Dwyer, collaborators Max Almy and Teri Yarbrow, and others; and New Media Transforms Tradition at Zane Bennett Contemporary Art, an exhibit of new work by Astrid Toha, Sophie Kahn, and other artists.
This year, Ragano and Amster have expanded the number of performance pieces and venues. “At the Lensic on June 20 we’ve got a performance going on with these guys from London called The Light Surgeons,” Ragano told Pasatiempo. Their show, titled SuperEverything, combines documentary footage, music, and motion graphics to explore the cultural landscape of Malaysia. In addition, Flinching Eye Collective presents a number of pop-up performances during the festival’s opening night.
